Teachers sign up for free Intel technology lessons

Some 25,000 teachers signed up last year for free technology lessons provided by Intel, the US giant whose processors run most of the world's computers, writes Neil Levis.

A further 100,000 are expected to do so this year with heads anxious to offer their schools as training centres. Some chosen by Intel have been given a cmputer suite with 24 monitors.

The company pays 200 expert teachers to be instructors on the 30-hour courses.

Later this year it will launch skool.com, a website for GCSE pupils featuring high-quality moving graphics and interactive lessons.
