Naha schools enter cyber age

Date Posted: 1998-03-20

Fifty-one Naha City schools will have Internet access at the start of the new Japanese school year at the beginning of April. All elementary and junior high schools will be allowed to use the World Wide Web for research and to allow students to experiment with new technologies, including building homepages using HTML, the programming language used on the Internet. Naha is the first municipality in whole Japan where all city schools will be connected to the Net.

Japan's Education Ministry is planning on having every elementary and middle school in the nation connected by the year 2003. Currently, 10% of the world's schools provide Internet access to school children.

Naha City has budgeted 100 million to the project, which began in November with the installation of 451 computers. Teachers will be offered training next year to allow all those involved to learn the technology which will soon be available, as well as some problems which they may encounter because of the exposure to the Internet.
