<p>Company to Donate 100,000 PCs to Classrooms</p>
<p>SYDNEY, Australia, Jan. 27, 2006 – Intel Corporation Chairman Craig Barrett today announced plans to increase training in the use of technology for an additional 10 million teachers in developing nations over the next five years. The plan significantly expands the Intel® Teach to the Future initiative, which since 2000 has already trained over 3 million teachers in 35 countries.</p>
<p>As part of the expanded program, Intel also announced it will donate 100,000 PCs to classrooms in developing nations in order to improve learning skills. The new effort supplements the US$100 million annual commitment Intel currently makes to improve education for young people worldwide.</p>
<p>“All governments face the same challenge: to provide their citizens with the opportunity to succeed in the global economy,” said Barrett. “Increasingly, that success is linked to the quality of education. Only by putting the tools and training in place to empower teachers can we truly affect learning and the development of skills. “Through our increased efforts, we have the potential to reach a billion students in developing nations by the end of 2010.”</p>
<p>Intel’s Teach to the Future initiative is a worldwide effort that has provided teachers in dozens of developing nations with extensive instruction and resources to promote the effective use of technology in the classroom. The program, centred around Intel’s belief that “computers aren’t magic, teachers are,” provides teachers with the knowledge on how, when and where to incorporate technology tools and resources into the learning environment. Intel Teach to the Future incorporates the use of the Internet, Web page design and student projects as vehicles for a powerful learning experience.</p>
<p>To complement its education programs, Intel has been working for a number of years with governments, industry, individuals and organizations on a variety of efforts to create an environment that supports social and economic advancement. The company collaborates with local businesses to enable job creation and industry competitiveness through investments, startup funding and partnerships aimed at developing the local technology industry. Intel also delivers the technologies and platforms that connect people to the knowledge economy. Through these efforts, Intel’s aim is to transform and improve lives through technology.</p>
