Tunisia has committed to a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to deploy high-speed connectivity, via broadband, in schools across the nation.
The deal, signed by the country’s minister of education Mohammed Hamdi and Mohamed Fadhel Kraiem, the minister of communication technologies and digital transformation, also includes the rehabilitation of the educational network.
It is also designed to meet the Ministry of Education’s vision to digitalise and develop its working methods to improve access to knowledge for young people.
Through digital technology, the ministry wants to give the different regions and their educational institutions the maximum opportunity to access quality educational content.
Kraiem said that the signing of this MoU is timely, given the development of training and distance learning platforms that offer new opportunities for access to more knowledge.
This partnership between the two ministries is also part of the “Digital Tunisia” strategic plan, whose objective is to achieve social integration and limit the digital divide through the popularisation of access to broadband digital services.
