Info about the Internet Technology Access


In a school in Azerbaijan, the teachers and talented students are working hard to become part of the world community in this information age. They purchased nine new computers in 2008, sent their teachers for computer training, and have an information technology teacher who is teaching the students computer skills. It is projected that internet access will become available by the end of 2009.

In the meantime, knowledge and opportunities are lost for both the students and the local community. Teachers and students are not aware of the educational opportunities that are available to them, and the community is not aware of the opportunities and programs which are available for economic development.

This project aims to facilitate the purchase of two internet access mobile telephones and a scanner/printer so that the school and the community can have immediate access to both receiving and transmitting information and utilize the skills they have already developed.

The school director and the volunteer will develop a protocol for the use of this equipment, which will benefit 40 teachers, 352 students, and countless community members.
