His contribution to developing young minds is not to just accept the laptop and projector for each class, as offered by the Government. He said he needs to get an iPod into the hands of each pupil. He went about raising the funding and had educational software loaded in each unit.
The verdict of the students is that it is "cooler than laptops and a deadly way to learn." (If you know Irish colloquialisms, you will know that "deadly" is high praise.)
