MTN organizes series of educational seminars in schools

Posted on: March 19, 2018

In order to further enhance its efforts in raising awareness on matters relating to a safer internet, MTN organizes educational seminars in Junior High and High Schools all over Cyprus. The first seminar successfully took place back in January at the Mitsis School in Lemythou, with nine more seminars following throughout Cyprus.

With the production of a short video titled "Your Choice", which focuses on subject matter of online bullying, MTN aims to make students -and especially teenagers- more aware on the aforementioned issues that increasingly affect the Cypriot youth.

MTN's training and educational seminars take place in collaboration with the well-known actor Andreas Phylachtou, who also stars in the video produced. In addition to the video shown during the seminars to the student community, a brief presentation of the educational app iWhiz, which was created by MTN in collaboration with the Cyprus Pedagogical Institute, also takes place during the seminars.

This educational app consists of questions related to web security, curriculum of the IT course of the Junior High and High Schools as well as other general knowledge questions. Students are thus able to enrich their knowledge through an entertaining process.

iWhiz is available for free for iOS and Android devices through the official app stores. More information at http://iwhiz.mtn.com.cy
