GOW2013 story from Macedonia:Power Users of Technology

Dobri Jovevski and Zivka Stoilkovska are primary school teachers from Kriva Palanka . Kriva Palanka is a small town located in the northeastern part of Macedonia with nearly 15 thousand inhabitants. In this town there are only two primary schools, one secondary school and one dormitory for students from the neighboring villages.

These two primary school teachers are real power users of technology. Although Dobri and Zivka teach in a satellite school in small nearby village of Konopnica, their classrooms are real high-tech playground for their students.

These teachers have advanced the use of ICT in their everyday practice, resulting in a level of comfort with technology that allows them to bypass many traditional learning systems. Their students play, explore, and experiment with technology to deepen their skills, solve problems, and create. They learn together with their students to accomplish their goals, spark their interests, and sharpen their technology skills.

Every day they are striving for new projects which will improve the use of the information technology in their environment.

When asked by Open the Windows association to promote the Get Online Week activities, they immediately accepted with great enthusiasm. Dobri and Zivka mobilized all educational institution in their town and held presentations on the Get Online Week Campaign and Internet safety in their central school Ilinden, as well as in the two other schools, and in the dormitory in the town. Their efforts were not unnoticed by the local TV station, which presented the campaign in its news, as well as by the municipality which posted information on its website.
