IT hubs launched for primary schools

Nairobi - The British Council and Microsoft have set up eighteen digital hubs for Kenyan primary schools, aimed at enabling pupils to access computers and the internet, The Standard reports.
The move seems like a drop in the ocean, but the scheme is a coup for Kenya's state education sector, according to BBC's Frenny Jowi who visited one of the hubs in Nairobi that had 21 computers.
Kenya has 639 state primary schools which are often over crowded, and often have a shortfall in resources as is illustrated by the Kilimani School hub that will be serving five schools altogether.
