Information about the project
Intel Learn Program
The Intel Learn Program is designed as an informal, after-school curriculum, intended for community-based technology centers. Aimed at learners aged 8-16, the curriculum is particularly targeted to communities where there is limited access to technology in homes and schools. The curriculum can accommodate community technology centers with a wide range of technology infrastructure—from newer, more sophisticated facilities to those with fewer resources. The Intel Learn Program's 60-plus hours of hands-on training introduce participants to common computer applications such as word processing, spreadsheets, graphics and multimedia through the completion of engaging projects. For many participants, the Intel Learn Program offers a first chance to apply technology skills to activities relevant to their lives and their futures. The program has, in its first year pilot, trained over 50K students in Mexico, India, China and Israel and will be expanding to four additional countries in 2005.
