Hieronder een gedeelte uit dit verhaaltje van PC World:
Intel and Microsoft are teaming up to contribute funding and donate software for a half-billion-dollar program to train teachers to use computers in classrooms.
Chip giant Intel and software giant Microsoft say they want to work together to eliminate "the barriers teachers face in effectively applying computer technology to improve student learning."
Under the three-year program, Intel will invest $100 million in cash, equipment, curriculum development, and program management to train more than 400,000 classroom teachers in 20 countries around the world.
Microsoft will donate software valued at $344 million at retail to the project, as well as cover program support costs.
"The scope of this program represents the industry's recognition that all the educational technology in classrooms today is worth nothing if teachers don't know how to use it effectively," says Craig Barrett, Intel president and chief executive officer. "Computers aren't magic, teachers are."
