Over the next four years, each Year 9 students in NSW schools will receive a Windows 7 enabled Lenovo IdeaPad S10e, which they can keep once they have left school. A total 267,000 netbooks will be handed out over the course of the program, which is part of the Rudd Government’s $2.2 billion Digital Education Revolution. A spokesperson from the NSW department of Education and Training (DET) confirmed that GeoGebra, Dia, Audacity, Freemind and MuseScore would all be included on the devices. “The NSW DET didn't take this opportunity to leap into the future with a platform that encourages sharing, collaboration, ingenuity and learning,” he said. “Now NSW has done it, I'm sure other states will continue to see Windows as the 'safe option' — but perhaps we'll see a bit of classic state-vs-state competitive innovation strike Victoria, Queensland or South Australia,” he said.
