Computer courses? The future is in your hands, using mobile internet access!
To benefit from the progress in new technologies, it is not enough to assume that creating enabling conditions will automatically change actions. In addition, the issue is not about “computer literacy” itself – though courses provided by almost all computer education businesses throughout the country focus primarily on technology based definitions, concepts, and skills. It is crucially, how this learning fits into the wider social contexts of people’s everyday lives.
“Young people in their sociocultural context, as well as people in general, not only do have a right to knowledge and skills of new technologies, they also manifest mostly a positive technology identity, augmenting their keen interest in further engagement with ICT. They are confident, act strategically and make sacrifices in order of becoming digitally literate.”

The goal is to offer a program of relevant, short-term courses, how to use and benefit from mobile internet and web applications, to link up with friends and family, exchange information, improve performance at school and work, increase productivity and competitiveness of local businesses, capacitate employees to be better linked and informed, or to start-up your own business. Mobile internet is not only a window to the world, but also to individual success. Hence the efficiency motto for COMO courses is “getting more, for less”.
