35,000 orders for Time's Free Software for Schools

13th October 2000 at 01:00
The people at Time Education have analysed the results of the Free Software for Schools promotion that was carried out with Times Newspapers (including The TES) last year. They reckon that they received 35,000 orders from 23,650 schools - a total of 55.3 million tokens. This generated 1.1 million free CD-Roms for Windows PCs (on paper worth pound;42.9 million) and Time expects to hand over up to 5,000 free PCs to schools. Time Education is alreay planning a new, improved Software for Schools promotion that it will launch at the BETT show in January 2001.

Meanwhile, it has extended the closing date of its "My Vision of Europe" art competition, launched with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Open to all UK primary schools, pupils can download software to create entries that they can email back to the website.
