Telekom Romania announces the digitalization of all high-schools and middle schools in Buzau city. Together with its partner, Adservio, Telekom has implemented an integrated educational package, that includes license for the educational management platform Adservio and 1,500 tablets equipped with data SIM cards, for the teachers in all the 15 high-schools and colleges, 12 middle schools and a kindergarten in Buzau city.
The digitalization of the educational institutions in Buzau city is part of a series of Smart Education initiatives, through which Telekom is facilitating the access of pupils and teachers in the educational institutions in Romania to modern, digital learning tools.
This project started in December 2017, when the Smart Education solution was implemented in 7 educational institutions in Buzau city. In 2019, the integrated educational package was implemented in 27 high-schools, colleges and schools and one kindergarten in this city.
”We started this project two years ago, in the three best high-schools and four middle schools and the results were excellent. By now we have managed to implement Adservio platform in all the 27 high-schools, colleges and schools and one kindergarten in Buzau city. I believe that this project has been a good opportunity to test the ability of the schools to use digital methods to teach, evaluate, test, communicate and report and to prove the benefits of digitalized education,” said Constantin Toma, the Mayor of Buzau city.
“Digitalization is one of the priorities of Telekom Romania’s development strategy. Through Smart Education initiatives, we aim to provide access to as many educational institutions in Romania as possible, to a solution which can make the teaching-learning process more attractive. The fact that all the high-schools, colleges and middle schools, as well as a kindergarten in Buzau city benefit now from the integrated educational package is a step forward towards an intelligent future, for this city and a new accomplishment for us. From 2017, when we launched our partnership with Adservio, we have implemented the educational integrated package in almost 70% of the counties in Romania and we will continue to develop in this direction,” said Ovidiu Ghiman, Chief Commercial Officer, Business Segment, Telekom Romania.
Through the educational package implemented by Telekom Romania and Adservio, the pupils, parents and teachers have permanent access to the subjects taught at school, homework, grades, absences and can communicate anytime on educational subjects. The users of the integrated package of Smart Education services benefited of trainings to efficiently use all the capabilities of the educational management platform Adservio.
