The Project That Wants To Bring Digital Education To The Underprivileged Children

The Internet is no longer a fad, but a necessary tool in all areas, including in education. In the countryside, things are not right, from this point of view.

A national survey conducted by GfK in secondary schools in rural areas show that 95% of these are connected to the Internet, but the connection is used largely for administrative purposes. “90% of schools in rural areas have a laboratory, but only half of the labs are connected to the Internet. While all schools in the rural areas have computers, in only 75% of the schools the equipment is fully functional”, the study shows.

Most research shows that 63% of teachers have an open attitude regarding the use of new technologies in the classroom, although their teaching experience with the educational digital material is very low. In conclusion, although there is a functional infrastructure and the teachers and students are open to using the technology, there are currently no digital educational materials available which can be used in teaching as it should.

“I started from this study, and we arrived at a draft. With countless debates and, ultimately, sprang from need, we come to what is called the digital education in the rural areas. It is important to understand that education is not the digitalisation of a fad and the Ministry of education to understand it,” said Dana Deac, President of the Foundation. She also said that she can only boast the involvement of the State institutions in this project, as well as the fact that this model can be extended if the results will be good.

The fast technological changes in this area determine the necessity of a permanent investment. The Ministry of education welcomes and supports all initiatives coming from the educaționali system and the partners who understand that the investment in education is a priority.

The Orange Foundation has decided to conduct a pilot project during 2016-2016 for secondary schools in 10 rural areas, for approximately 3000 children. The project is aimed at improving the educational performance of students at some of the most difficult subjects through the use of modern teaching methods, in addition to the traditional ones.
