Teachers are hiding tablets because they fear the portable computers will render them redundant, a government officer has said.On Wednesday, Robert Mugo, the acting chief executive officer of the Information and Communication Technology Authority, said the educators should not be worried since the devices were just serving as learning aids.“On May 19, the Ministry of Education issued a circular to all regional education co-ordinators and county directors of education asking them to launch all the devices,” said Mr Mugo. “Some schools have not been informing the parents about the devices so that they know of their existence.”Speaking when he toured Moi University’s Rivatex assembling plant in Eldoret to assess the progress of the project, Mr Mugo said the government had deployed 230 ICT officers to various counties to coordinate the process that will see the local communities own the project.
