the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, and
the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports and Culture . It is a
project to examine the worthiness of computer networks in the primary and
secondary education. 111 schools and educational institutes are involved
in the project.
The objective of the project is to prove that introduction of newest features
of networking to the schools makes it possible to carry out education which is
beyond the conventional framework of education. Because, it can be expected
that use of network motivates the classes to work more actively at a higher
level, enables the students to exchange with students from other schools
inside and outside the country, enables them to access and use intelligent
resources, such as databases, and thus
strengthens their abilities to create, to think, and to present.
