    Orman Experimental Preparatory School joins Smart Schools Network

    Cairo, 23 February 2005

    Minister of CIT, Dr. Tarek Kamel, and Minister of Education, Dr. Ahmed Gamal ElDin Moussa, witnessed the implementation of the Smart Schools Network at the Orman Experimental School in Giza.

    This step comes in response to a protocol of mutual cooperation signed by both parties in addition to the United Nations Development Program and Italian Cooperation. The Smart Schools Network project aims at renovating the Egyptian educational system and creating an electronically based schooling structure. This should enable pupils better absorb the academic material in an efficient manner to be on equal footing with their counterparts in developed countries. Students, exploring their computerized academic curriculum, will fear no more using advanced technology and will maximize their future potential. Eventually, this should lead to the development of an IT based society.

    Members of both the academic and administrative staff have received sufficient training. Teachers will now be able to instruct their students more efficiently and help them adapt to the rapid technological advancement. Students have also been trained to qualify for obtaining the ICDL to further expand their horizons.

    At present, LE 25 million are allocated for the project, which involves 38 preparatory schools, governmental and experimental, in 15 governorates. Those schools include 98 computer labs equipped with 2,677 PCs. The estimated number of students who will benefit from this project is 18,500. In addition, 2,500 teachers and 300 administrators will improve their teaching capability and administrative work .
