The Challenge

Through the HDT program, some of the schools started to receive all-in-one BenQ computers. "These computers worked very well, but using the approved federal budget, it was only possible to deliver 10 computers per school due to their high cost. The problem is that at public schools we usually have groups of 50 students, and it is very well known that the students interacting with the computer learn more than the ones watching," said Guillermina Colorado, from the Government of Veracruz.

In the first phase of the project, the Ministry was planning on equipping 450 schools out of the 22,000, but due to the high cost of the computers and some technical difficulties, it was not possible to complete this first phase. The challenge consisted not only in equipping all the schools, but also in providing access to as many students as possible in each school.
