Digital education is a mandatory subject of study for primary school pupils at all educational establishments of our country. This initiative was launched in 2018 and was aimed to teach children personal computers, technologies and robots, to breed passion for STEM education and to encourage children to choose a profession of the future. This Programme was launched after signing a Memorandum of Understanding concerning the development of digital education in general education, by and between the Ministry of Education, Culture and Research, Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure, National Association of ITC Companies and Tekwill Project.
This subject was taught to pupils of first classes over the first year of project implementation. Then, in 2019 and in 2020, digital education became a subject of study for pupils of second and, respectively, third classes.
Aiming to continue the implementation of ‘Tekwill in Every School’ project, Tekwill will organise training sessions for teachers, depending on training groups for each class and on available textbooks (in the Romanian and Russian languages):
• First class (in the Romanian and Russian languages),
• Second class (in the Romanian and Russian languages),
• Third form (in the Romanian and Russian languages).
Criteria for registration for the Training Programme are as follows:

In 2018, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Research, Ministry of Economy and Infrastructure, National Association of ITC Companies and Tekwill Project signed a Memorandum of Understanding concerning development of digital education in general education. This Memorandum suggested supporting the development of teaching materials as required for implementation of digital education.
