Connecting Southeast Asia & Europe e-Learning Models
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has provided technical assistance amounting to $1,000,000 to support a project on ICT and HIV/AIDS Preventive Education in the Cross-Border Areas of the GMS for an 18-month period beginning March 2003. The Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) were appointed Executing Agencies for implementation of the Project each with its own sub-project component.
SEAMEO Sister School Network Project / SEAMEO Regional Schools Internet Project
The adoption of Ban Prue Wai Primary School, a SEAMEO Community Involvement Project, was presented before the 32nd SEAMEO Council Conference in Manila, Philippines. The Conference recommended that school linkages between the Member Countries, especially through the Internet, be explored to promote cooperation and develop people-to-people relationships in the SEAMEO context.
With 14 specialist institutions scattered throughout the region, SEAMEO is well positioned to provide Distance Education Packages to distance education providers or other users and institutions. Guidance for Distance Education Package development can be provided by SEAMEO Centres that specialise in the package's focus or can be directed by SEAMEO related project results.
