What happens Inside Our Green IT Classrooms?

As always, our teams have been busy visiting our schools, maintaining the computers in our Green It classrooms as well as exchanging with teachers and students on their progress in digital literacy and their learning.

“Students are far more interested in IT class than in other subjects. Since the parents of most students are busy with their work and spend less time with children, computer classes can enrich their knowledge and broaden their horizon during their spare time.”

Teacher from Xi’An Green IT Classroom

I came from Anhui. My parents work in Shanghai, so I followed them to come here two years ago. I did not have a computer in my hometown, so I like IT classes the most. It makes me discover and connect to the world outside. Most importantly, my friends and I have more shared topics. At the same time, I always show off that I can play animation during the IT class and learn a lot of new knowledge through computers with my friends.”

Student from Songjiang Green IT Classroom

“We always expect that volunteers from company could build the bridge with children, because of them, more and more children like to come to school. Since the school doesn’t have sufficient teaching resources, children usually look for resources online by themselves.”
