Tap tap hooray!

Hart. The Hart elementary school now has its new tablet-based learning system up and running. AlzChem director Stefan Greger went to see for himself – and came away very impressed. When he visited class 3a the students were diligently typing in the right answers (we hope!) into their tablet computers. School Principal Heiko Schachtschabel is proud of the new medium, an additional electronic contribution to teaching at the elementary school that has enhanced all aspects of teaching since it was introduced last year.
