“As an employer we are expecting our employees to have good command of the digital tools of today. I believe it is the general mindset for all employers. This is why our program will give the participants the opportunity to be competitive in the labour market and will help the teachers to make the learning process easier and more efficient thanks to the digital tools.”, said Naira Nazaryan, Head of Public Relations, Beeline Armenia.
“Digital Opportunities for Schoolchildren” program is one of the best showcases of successful cooperation between the civil society and business, which speaks of the importance of education. We believe, that living in a world soaked up with digital technologies, the IT-literacy and skills of efficient application of digital opportunities are of crucial importance to have. It is one thing to just know what the internet is and what it is for and a different thing to know and understand how to use it correctly and what to search where.”, added Lusine Simonyan, Child Development Foundation Director.
Recap: The planned result of the program is to create a catalog of tools supporting the education process, which will enable summarizing the tools that students have learned during the program, allowing them to be used in daily learning process, and making them available for all schools.
