What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Our country is a newly developing country and educational reforms are just being implemented. ICT is not an active ingredient of the whole Armenian educational process. Not all the children in schools have access to Internet. Those who can afford having internet and computer either in school or home do not use it for the benefit of their education and development. Rather, they use it for playing games and entertainment.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project will help enhance the usage of ICT in the sphere of education and culture, increase the number of teenagers using media resources, and assist in their free speech and thought, identification of other nations. It will encourage the beneficiaries to write themes on mentioned spheres, to make media materials, which will take a chance to learn how to use internet as a tool of education, culture and information spreading.
Potential Long Term Impact
ICT will become an active factor in the educational process in Armenia Will result in raising the awareness of the whole Armenian society Will assist in development of cross cultural relationships The research and creative abilities of teenagers will become more developed
