Fifty Croatian Schools Will Now be Connected with WiFi

More than 26,000 students from 30 primary and 20 secondary schools in Croatia will use a Wi-Fi network with high speed internet access thanks to a project that was conducted by Microsoft Croatia and Croatian Academic and Research Network (CARNet), with the support of the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports.

In addition to fast access to the Internet, students will receive a high level of security by controlling the connection of the network where students will only be able to access with an “all@edu” identity, a topic that was discussed Tuesday at the launch of the project held at the Technical School Ruđer Bošković.


Director at CARNet Zvonimir Stanić pointed out that the development of digital technology is necessary to develop the education system and create digitally competent and computer literate students. With this project, the students will be provided fast and reliable Internet access, and thus a wide range of information and new knowledge.


Wi-Fi access for the students will facilitate business principals and help the administrative staff of schools, while teachers and students can use “e-Diary” and other CARNet services, said Stanić.


Director of Microsoft Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina Ivan Vidaković said that this project is a clear indication of how the future will look like in a modern education system. “The Internet has changed the way we communicate, learn, work and entertain. By focusing on technology and networking in education, Microsoft helps students master digital skills and competencies required for the upcoming fourth industrial revolution”, he noted.


Vidaković reminded us that today in Croatia, less than 10% of children in primary schools have access to digital technology. One computer, he added, educates 26 students, while the number for example in Slovenia is ten to one. He expressed hope that the project will be a boost to accelerating the process of digitizing schools.
