When teacher is miles away

5th November 2004 at 00:00
Primary pupils in East Riding will be able to take real-time internet lessons miles away from their teachers. The pound;250,000 scheme, aimed at special-needs and gifted pupils, allows one-to-one distance tuition using headsets and microphones. Children will also be able to see and hear the teacher giving a lesson from a digital learning centre.
