The government has decided to install an internet access control system in all tablet computers distributed to Prathom 1 students, or first graders.
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Minister Anudith Nakornthap said the system, technically called the authentication system, aimed to prevent young users from opening inappropriate websites.
Installing the system will cost about 120 million baht and the state telecom enterprise TOT Plc will be responsible for it. Once installed, students will be unable to open websites blacklisted by the ICT Ministry.
