An alliance of IT and telecoms vendors was formed last week to encourage the use of the Internet in schools around Europe. Companies including Oracle, Apple, Sun Microsystems, France Telecom and Deutsche Telekom will work together to help schools hook up to the Net.
The alliance, called the European Education Partnership, was launched to coincide with last week's EC conference on education in Brussels. The group will play a key role in the EC's Netdays, a week of Commission-sponsored events to encourage schools and private firms to work together to use the Internet as a learning tool.
Netdays will take place between 18 and 25 October, when schools will register their web sites and Internet projects on an EC database.
