Intel To Donate 100,000 PCs To Classrooms
Posted on 26-Jan-2006 13:37. | Tags Filed under: News.



Intel Corporation Chairman Craig Barrett has announced plans to train an additional 10 million teachers in developing nations over the next five years in the use of technology to enhance learning.

The plan expands the Intel Teach to the Future initiative, which since 2000 has already trained over 3 million teachers in 35 countries.

As part of the expanded program, Intel also announced it will donate 100,000 PCs to classrooms in developing nations in order to improve learning skills. The new effort supplements the US$100 million annual commitment Intel currently makes to improve education for young people worldwide.

"All governments face the same challenge: to provide their citizens with the opportunity to succeed in the global economy," said Barrett. "Increasingly, that success is linked to the quality of education. Only by putting the tools and training in place to empower teachers can we truly affect learning and the development of skills.

"Through our increased efforts, we have the potential to reach a billion students in developing nations by the end of 2010."

Intel's Teach to the Future initiative is a worldwide effort that has provided teachers in dozens of developing nations with extensive instruction and resources to promote the effective use of technology in the classroom. The program provides teachers with the knowledge on how, when and where to incorporate technology tools and resources into the learning environment.

Intel Teach to the Future incorporates the use of the Internet, Web page design and student projects as vehicles for a powerful learning experience.
