CDI in the community
Community CDIs are informal spaces for teaching computer science and citizenship, sheltered by partner institutions within communities, smaller institutions for fulfilling educational measures, indigenous aldeias, prisons and institutions to support users of mental health.
These spaces are community leaders ahead of the process. Thus, social issues, values and other characteristics of each environment are respected and taken into account by CDI. This work of digital inclusion and citizenship can be adapted to local needs and public.
The CDI offers basic and advanced courses in computer science to a wide audience, ranging from 7 years until the Third Age. The courses are free and range from Introduction to Computing (Microsoft Office) to advanced courses such as image editing and video.
Each CDI Community has at least 10 complete computers and can receive about 10 classes, totaling 100 alunos for the classroom.
Within the Community CDIs are also housed special projects, as: Projeto HP Life, Project Light, Projeto SMS-DC RJ, Friends of the Earth and Project IAF. Learn more about these projects by clicking here.
