"The Government is committed to providing all Australian students in Years 9 to 12 with access to a computer, integrating digital technology into everyday teaching and learning.

"As well as providing computers for schools nationally, the Government is delivering digital learning resources and online diagnostic tools for teachers, students and parents.

"This Government continues to take the action required to make Isaacs schools, indeed schools right across Australia, great schools." Mr Dreyfus said.
