Computer Courses

Teaching computer skills, including Internet, for children, youth, and adults. Netanya 

Rationale

Almost every Israeli household has a computer, and most of them have Internet access. ‎A child growing up in a home without a computer is at a huge disadvantage, placing him at the ‎wrong end of the educational and cultural gap. With teachers increasingly emailing students and ‎parents regarding assignments, children without computer skills, as well as their parents, are left ‎behind. Furthermore, when parents lack the computer skills of their children, the generation gap ‎widens and parental supervision is impossible.‎
