Director of Logitech Australia, George Saad, has affirmed his support for the use of technology in schools.

“As technology becomes increasingly incorporated into the classroom it is important that teachers at all levels understand how to best integrate this new technology into the teaching and learning process,” said Saad.

“These scholarships are a step towards Logitech’s goal of helping teachers make the use of technology more engaging, valuable and productive which will ultimately contribute to improved educational outcomes.”
