Laptops and free internet access for Children Ward of the Institute for Orthopaedic-Surgical Diseases

Thanks to Telenor Foundation, children undergoing shorter or longer hospital treatment at the Banjica Institute for Orthopaedic-Surgical Diseases will be able to follow the teaching materials and use their free time to browse interesting contents on the Internet.


 

The Banjica Hospital, which was today presented with 12 laptops and provided with free Internet access, is the first in a series which the Foundation will equip in the campaign “Be on Top”. The aim is to ensure equal access as the children of school age have and a possibility to constantly advance the knowledge, just like their peers who attend regular schooling.

 

“There are 42 children at our ward at every moment and it’s very hard for them to be on top of all that their peers are learning in the school. Also, today’s young people are digitally literate and want to have all the information in real time. I am exceptionally happy that Telenor Foundation has recognised a way to make that possible for them”, says Vesna Jovanović, orthopaedic specialist at the Institute for Orthopaedic-Surgical Diseases.

 

Children will also have access to the “Super School” (Superškola) programme, a virtual classroom with over 650 lessons in the Serbian language, mathematics, physics and chemistry, which will help them make up for the lessons they missed. The educational portal also includes lectures, experiments and explanations so that the children can more easily master school materials from the fifth to eighth elementary grade.
