Education first

At T-Mobile, we know that access to new technologies and the ability to use them with skill are now key aspects of life — not only for adults, but also for children. It is children who, for a few weeks now, have been confronted with the digital world more than before, for example when they participate in online lessons or surf the web in their spare time.

Digital responsibility is one of the pillars of our corporate responsibility strategy; therefore, we want children to be introduced into the world of new technologies from a very early age but in such a way that they can use its benefits reasonably. Moreover, the ability to use digital tools every day while learning and working is very important for their future, as digital competences are highly appreciated by employers.

In 2020, T-Mobile, together with Digital University Foundation, launched a nationwide educational project called B.Net, as part of which several dozen training courses and workshops were organised for children and teachers working in primary schools. Their aim is to develop digital skills and raise awareness of cyber threats. B.Net is addressed to teachers and primary school students, library and community centre workers in municipalities with less than 50,000 inhabitants.

Key network security aspects for students aged 6 to 13 were discussed during online training courses.

During the training, apart from thorough knowledge, teachers received ready-made lesson plans that they should use in grades 1 to 8 at their school during the B.NET week, as well as certificates of participation. The variants of the plans were prepared: for grades 1-3, 4-6 and 7-8, and the lesson subjects were profiled to match students’ age.

At the end of the project, experts prepared B.NET online tournaments for students, which were full of fun and interesting challenges and were aimed at reviewing cybersecurity issues in an attractive way.

The project was under the honorary patronage of the Ministry of Digital Affairs and NASK, a National Research Institute. All information about the project, free educational materials and teacher training dates, along with the training enrolment system, are available at
