Today's children are the leaders of tomorrow. I have been involved with Cisco Neta Project for the past 4 years.  Cisco is sponsoring e-learning programs for high school students around the world. I have been teaching Israeli Arabs; Moslem and Christian, Jewish Israelis; religious and secular , and Ethiopian and Russian immigrants from poor socio economic backgrounds not only to learn English for computer studies, but leadership and teamwork skills. Bridging the digital gap is an ongoing process that needs everyone's attention. Teachers and leaders can add a Cisco academy program to their school.

I have added an article from a recent conference called Youth as the actor, ICT as the enabler! .
