    a fiber network connecting all government and quasi government facilities In 2003 Besançon also became the first city providing computer equipment to all children of the same age class and their families Within the Digital Schoolbag project all 3rd grade students receive a multimedia computer package Given to the pupils free of charge the package comprises a computer with Pentium processor the same educational software that is used at school dictionaries atlas etc and the option to subscribe to Internet access The Schoolbag also includes workshops for the parents in order to enable them to participate in their children s learning at school In 2001 the Ministry of National Education introduced a new Information and Internet Certificate This required that pupils be tested in computer and Internet skills at the end of elementary and middle school The results of the evaluation have shown that the pupils in Besançon beginning their first year of secondary school have a much higher success level than the national average Pew Research Center s Internet American Life Project The Pew Internet Project conducts original research that explores the impact of the Internet on children families communities the workplace schools health care and civic political life The Project was initially conceived by the staff and officers of the Pew Charitable Trusts and is one of seven key projects of the Pew Research Center in Washington DC Pew observed in the late 1990s that many of the debates regarding the impact of the Internet lacked reliable data In 1999 the foundation hired Lee Rainie to secure an initial three year grant Rainie was named the project s Director and has spearheaded the enormously influential series of research projects ever since The Project conducted its first survey about the general role of the Internet and email on the average person s life in March 2000 one year before ICF s landmark white paper studying the global impact on communities The animating spirit of that report and subsequent research was to provide data and insights of relevance to policy makers journalists scholars technology leaders non profit executives and engaged citizens in communities in the United States It became clear after the Project s early reports that other groups were considered stakeholders including the medical community parent and child advocates librarians and new media workers including an emerging generation of media workers within government agencies Over the past decade ICF noted that the Internet American Life project has covered topics as diverse as Internet viruses music downloading online privacy cell phone usage and wireless connectivity More recent subjects include cloud computing and the future of the Internet The Project has also followed new online activities as they reach a critical threshold of adoption ICF noted the impact of Pew s studies on broadband usage in the United States and how broadband influences behavior
