COMPUTER SCREENS ARE FLASHING RURAL




By : SHALINA ROSENI

OSINDAK or Sinda, information technology is shining on Tenom, a rural district deep in the interior of Sabah about 194 km (120.5 miles) away from Kota Kinabalu. Sinda in Murut means shine.

Tenom is home to about 60,000 people; half of whom are indigenous Muruts. A two-day Sinda-iT programme last week brought young and old together all eager to know what computer technology has in store for them.

Sinda-iT comes under the Aramai-iT programme of the ministry of resource development and information technology. It is targeted at youth aged between 10 and 18 who form about a quarter of Tenom’s population.

Some 250 of them from four villages learnt not only how to play computer games, but they got a thrill of working with Microsoft Office software, knowing the outside world at a click of a mouse and getting a feel of gadgets such as digital cameras, iPads and iPhones. (Insight Sabah)

  4. Kursus ICT jangka pendek yang diadakan setiap hujung minggu (sabtu & ahad) diadakan secara percuma telah berjaya melahirkan seramai lebih seribu orang yang berpengetahuan asas dalam penggunaan ICT (Information Communication Technology) selepas menghadiri kursus tersebut di mana dahulunya mereka dikategorikan sebagai ‘buta ICT’.
