Computers widely used in schools

Nine out of 10 primary school pupils use a computer during lessons. In secondary schools the number is half this, with 11% never having worked on a computer.

The figures come from the government’s educational IT support organisation Kennisnet which expects the number of children at secondary schools using computers to reach 71% by 2009.
