  • Projects

  • [email protected] internet wireless [email protected] - an educational training project that moulds technological awareness by developing practical skills for Internet users.Since July 2006 - 24 485 people have taken part in this project.

  • IkonkaIts a governmental project, made by Ministry of the Interior and Administration of Poland.The libraries get new computers, software and internet access. Users can use the Internet for free. Unfortunately not every library took part in this project.

  • Our projects

  • 1st projectOur project based on teaching children and parents together how to use new technologies, mainly the Internet. Children usually know how to use it, but they are not interested in e.g. e-government. During the course parents learn about benefits of using the Internet and children help them to use it. The main teacher is only a motivator.The course should be prepared by school, because there are IT-teachers, computers, software and internet access.

  • 2nd projectThe purpose of this project is to encourage big and small companies to teach their workers how to use the all aspects of the Internet. They shouldbe motivated to do it by govermental grants or tax discounts.The reason of it is to decrease the number of people excluded from many social groups, including the Internet users.

  • CONCLUSIONSA digital divide is not a popular subject during the public discussions.Old people dont need it. Its still possible to live without using the internet. The problem will grow if there are not enough solutions now. There is no one big project for every country, there are only local projects.
