The project involved the teachers and students basic computer training. After the training teachers search the internet and prepared a video simulation and presentation for their lesson topics. Students observe different climatic regions of Ethiopia using Bing map and Encarta, gather information from the internet about dominant vegetations and animals, and the population distribution across the regions. And then develop researches, list down the major threat and suggest some possible solutions to alleviate the problems in relation with the climatic conditions. They also follow-up their lessons with the support of computers; communicate and submit their assignments to their teacher and prepared presentations for their researches.
