According to Governor Markus Wallner (ÖVP), the coronavirus meant that devices for the students were organized much faster than would otherwise have been the case. However, digitization has a big price tag, the device costs around 400 euros, but parents only pay 88 euros. After the handover, the device belongs entirely to the child, it does not have to be returned.
80 percent of the middle schools and high schools have registered for the tablet campaign, the rest still want to see how the devices are used. For up to a year from now, all children from the age of eleven should have a constant digital companion in the classroom.
