Motion text

That this House welcomes the news that Highland Council is expecting a delivery of 617 tablets and laptops this week to ensure that the most vulnerable children, young people and families are not digitally excluded; notes that those who receive a device will also have access to Digital Champions in Highland Council to help them to maximise their devices and connectivity; and recognises that this initiative was made possible through the Scottish Government's Connecting Scotland scheme, supported by Mi-Fi devices which will help ensure connectivity with unlimited data for families for up to two years.
