Information about the project
OSE - fast Internet for all schools
Nationwide Education Network (OSE) provides fast, safe and free of charge Internet access to primary and secondary schools in Poland. We are looking at 30 853 schools and over 5 000 000 potential users (both students and teachers). OSE is going to be fully based on existing broadband infrastructure that may be used for providing Internet access with bandwidth of at least 100 Mbps. OSE is not only about the Internet access, as it is a digital tool that enables the provision of services for teaching digital skills and constantly increasing competences of its users. OSE is a Polish government project that equalizes the chances and opportunities with access to the newest ICT solutions for all students, as OSE will overcome digital exclusion. By implementing OSE we are expecting: - Civilizational leap in teaching methods from “analog” to digital education, with the use of Internet content; - Equalization of educational opportunities for all students in Poland, particularly those living in low population areas; - Modern technologies enable the transfer of knowledge and experience between educational units; - Ensuring security of using the network by students by implementing mechanisms of digital security.
National implementation: Poland
