The First International CyberSchool of the future for the new IT-generation KIBERone has become a world champion in the field of digital education for children. The project is recognised as a Champion by the UN General Assembly and UNESCO, following the results of the International contest - the WSIS Prizes 2020. The competition has been held since 2012 under aegis of the United Nations in the framework of The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS Forum).
KIBERone CyberSchool is the largest international project in the field of digital education for children aged 6 to 14, which operates in 20 countries and more than 150 cities.
This year, over 800 projects from around the world were submitted for the 2020 contest, and about 2 million people took part in the voting.
At the conclusion of the voting phase and the selection of the projects by the Expert Group, the KIBERone project got a large number of votes and was recognized as a champion in the category of "E-learning" and the use of ICT (information and communication technologies) for the formation of the world information society. "The preparation for the competition took about a year. The results became known in March 2020, " said Olga Apalkova, the founder of the KIBERone project.
The WSIS Prizes 2020 award ceremony with the participation of Olga Apalkova, the founder of KIBERone, will be held in Geneva in the fall of 2020, where The WSIS Forum will be held.
