The Outline of Schoolnet

1 "Schoolnet"

Children are living in advanced information-oriented society, where they are surrounded by a lot of information. In order to live in that kind of society, children must have the ability to select the most useful information from the enormous amount of information available, and they must be able to send their own positive message. Therefore, we have designed Schoolnet, the network for the public schools in Ishikawa Prefecture, in order to raise such children. The center of Schoolnet is based at Ishikawa-ken Kyoiku Center (Ishikawa Prefectural Educational Research and In Service Center ), and we are going to make the network safe and easy to use.
