  School computers on the up
Updated 07 November 2001, 17.08
Computers in school
The number of schools with computers has gone up by a quarter, says a new survey.

This means on average there are 34 computers in each primary, secondary and special needs school in 2001 - up from 27 in 2000.

Techno teachers

And apparently your teachers are getting more computer savvy too.

The study - by the British Educational Suppliers Association (Besa) - says last year less than half the number of teachers asked felt happy using new technology.

Computers at school

That number's now gone up to 60 percent.

Computer 'labs'

And there's more good news - a new trend is growing, particularly in primary schools, to move computers out of the classroom and into computer "labs".

But we want to know what you think about the computers in your school. Go to the link on the right to email your comments.
