Free 1Malaysia Netbook for teachers


As part of the national Teachers’ Day 2014 celebrations, Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek has announced that about 400,000 government teachers will receive a free 1Malaysia Netbook.

Datuk Seri Shabery has stated that the 1Malaysia Netbook program was a 2010 initiative under the National Broadband Initiative. Its objective is to distribute one million 1Malaysia Netbooks to students in rural areas and will now extend to teachers. To date, over 1.7 million 1Malaysia Netbooks have been distributed to Malaysian students since the start of the program.

According to Datuk Seri Shabery, the Cabinet has approved to start the program and extend the devices to almost 400,000 teachers in government schools around the country.

He further added that this was the Government’s gift to all teachers for this year’s Teachers’ Day celebrations.
