Argentina relaunches 'Conectar Igualdad' digital inclusion plan

Friday 14 January 2022 | 12:17 CET | News
Argentina's education ministry has relaunched the 'Conectar Igualdad' digital inclusion plan to boost access to technological devices among the most vulnerable parts of the population, reports Telesemana. The aim is to distribute at least 1 million computers to schools this year, including over 600,000 in the Buenos Aires province alone. A total of 5 million devices were awarded to schools under the plan between 2010 and 2015, but the numbers slumped to just 700,000 between 2015 and 2019.
