    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.

"Is there any way to keep this computer room, and let us continue to learn?" The school teachers and students asked the Netspring staff.
