UFMG and the telecenters in the public schools

Today we talked to Wagner Meira, Jr., at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais,
and visited a shared computing installation at the central university library.
Together with the Secretary of Education of the state of Minas Gerais, and some
NGOs, they are installing computer labs in public schools (in the city of BH and in
the rest of the state). They stress not only the access to the computer and to the
Internet, but also the possibility of content generation. Each school, and each
student and teacher has a space to generate his/her own web page.

We go to Rio today to start the study on CDI.
