Digital Awareness Classrooms

MINTEL, Telecommunications Ministry and Information Society of Information of the Government of Ecuador.

Ecuador is a small country where the topography and exuberant nature make it both a natural wonder and a country with very remote areas which make access to digital communication, and internet quite difficult. Therefore, Mintel, launched a series of mobile classrooms in order to minimize the digital divide in all areas of the country.

Thus, buses equipped with the latest technologies and broadband were sent to all parts of Ecuador and the most underserved sectors of society, to both provide broadband access and educate the population in Information Technology and Communication in order to improve the lives of all citizens wherever they are.

This campaign was awarded the 2013 WSIS (World Summit on Information Society Award) Award.
