Students at Washington Technology Magnet School are working on earning their IC3 (Internet and Computing Core Certification) certification, a global program that certifies an individual’s digital literacy skills associated with basic computer and Internet use. When a student completes the certification he/she gets a free personal laptop to use to complete homework, conduct research and communication classmates and teachers.
One student who earned a free laptop recently told us that he’s going to use it to learn programming and to build a website for codeacademy.com. “This laptop will definitely help me with my future job in computers.”
