GOW2013 story from Russia: "You Learn, You teach"

Real accomplishment

As part of GOW, the Togliatti State University and Tvoy Kurs: IT for Youth Project organized the contest Digital Citizenship: You Learn, You teach. High school students designed training manuals based on online tools. Contest participants studied the ICT tools and created special websites with several wonderful online guides, such as Online Registration for a Doctor’s appointmentInstructions for a beloved GrannyElectronic Citizen, Instructions for Parents on Using the School Electronic Journal and many others.  The 

manuals are very creative and full of inspiring tips and guides and take beginners online step by step. All projects were awarded according to the contest results. Inspired by their success, students shared their opinion about GOW 2013 and the contest, ”That’s cool! Let’s do more! IT for Youth project is for us!” They are excited and willing to improve and develop IT skills needed in the XXI century.
