In the ICC a discussion has taken place with the theme “Information Technologies and Education”. Teachers and previous and present pupils participated in the discussion. The conversation was very interesting and lively. Participants attached importance to the role of information technologies in the forming of the person, with special regards to the Internet as a great power and way of information exchange. Many of them also mentioned the negative sides of that phenomenon, when students devote too much time to this endeavor.
