The Singapore Masterplan for IT in Education was launched in 1997 by the Minister for Education, RAdm Teo Chee Hean. This was to mark a new emphasis of bringing Information Technology (IT) to the classroom. All schools were to be brought online in stages. Ten primary, ten secondary and two junior colleges were the first to experience the new initiative. Known as Demo (Demonstration) schools, teachers from these schools were made to undergo thirty hours of IT-based training. Computer hardware and the related peripherals were lavished onto these schools. Since then about one hundred schools formed the second phase and the remaining schools were put in phase three.
