  • In this golden autumn season,  a special new academic year came to Yichun Xilin Primary School in North China's Heilongjiang Province.

    3 years ago, the Yichun Xilin primary school, with the help of Netspring, had a Green IT classroom set up. Over the past 3 years, the students and the computer teacher in the school made full use of this IT classroom by holding computer classes almost every week. Through several semesters of study, the students not only learned the basic operation skills of the computer, but also increased their interest in learning advanced and dynamic scientific knowledge.

    At the beginning of this year, the IT classroom is about to expire at the end of its 3-year service term. Knowing that, the teachers and the students were reluctant to part. "Is there any way to keep this computer room, and let us continue to learn?" The school teachers and students asked the Netspring staff.
