Our senior bible school staff received a technology boost when they were given iPads at the start of this term. These new tablet computers are extremely portable and are not susceptible to power failures like their old desktop computers.
Those of us with iPads will know that the opportunities with such devices are limitless, with an abundance of apps available, such as bibles, e-books, organisational software, teaching software and much more. What is also helpful is the increasing availability of the internet in Myanmar. There are more internet hotspots becoming available and mobile internet is becoming quite cost effective (though the speeds are still very slow). This will also hopefully provide an easier flow of news between Myanmar and overseas supporters!
