  • Recognitions (Contd…) Extract from the comments of Jury of Stockholm Award 2010   “ IT@School has a well established management, organization and infrastructure. It has achieved greatly and has had great impact. This project has well organized ICT enabled education by integrating diverse elements such as capacity building, infrastructure, content development, and advanced technologies. It is notable to see a "School WIKI" for sharing knowledge. To improve the intellectual ability of the teachers and comprehension ability of the students is always a difficult task. This on-going award project with 10 years under its belt is no doubt impressive in size. We can appreciate the logistics involved in project with this extension. Soon IT@School will have to confront the challenge of renewing itself. We are certain they will be up to the challenge, given IT@School achievements so far. “
