Mobile Information Education
The Mobile Information Education Program has been operated since 2001 for the purpose of educating the information-poor residents of remote farming villages through in-person visits.
The program is conducted in a large bus (45 seats) that has been remodeled and fitted with educational equipment. As classes can be held wherever parking space is available, Gyeongsangbuk-do residents are able to receive mobile information education in their own neighborhoods without having to commute long distances.
The GBARES recently adopted new concepts of information education in order to increase the quality of the education it provides. Its education program is making significant contributions to enhancing both the information capabilities and overall quality of life of all Gyeongsangbuk-do residents.
