Schools in Achinsk to receive over a thousand student netbooks
20 June 2011
As of now Achinsk has joined the list of cities that are participating in the “Computers for Schools” programme, which is being carried out the largest private charity organization in the country – Oleg Deripaska’s Volnoe Delo Foundation.
By the end of the month schools in Achinsk will receive 1275 netbooks for elementary school students. The computers will be connected in every classroom by a wireless network - so that the students may interact with the teacher. The netbooks will be equipped with the latest educational programmes in every subject. This will not only lighten schoolbags, but will also provide students with visual training aids – interactive formulas, tables, graphs, pictures and various other media. Specialists from the Board of Education have said that the time and duration the students will spend working with computers will be established by health and safety regulations.
The project in Achinsk is being carried out with the support of RUSAL, the Achinsk alumina refinery and LLC Basel Cement.
