We continue our “Online Olympiad” project in different regions of Armenia.
The aim of the project is:
The volunteers of our project visit to different regions of Armenia, they organize meetings with teenagers on the age of 14-18 and youth, present the projects, inform about their problems, distribute booklets on the activity of online club. In the result the number of new members in online club is being increased. The beneficiaries participated in the project enroll in the club and begin their active participation in the activities of Online Olympiad project. Actually our volunteers have organized “Read and …..” competition. Our former beneficiaries Mariam Saribekyan, Rubina Davtyan and Nare Gareginyan have visited to the regions of Armenia with the aim of organizing meetings.
We have created a virtual educational environment, where the given opportunities of new media are used for the benefit of young people, and the information technologies are used as an active factor in the educational process in which they get the answers of their questions from that environment. The project helped young people to raise their journalist, research and creative skills by using information technologies.
I am Vigen Mkrtchyan. I am a student in the collage of Armenian State Pedagogical University, and at the same time I have participated in “Online Olympiad” project organized by Zartonk-89 NGO. Now we have created online center where I am involved in its works. I and the participants of Olympiad visit to remote regions of Armenia, present our “Online Olympiad” project to involve new members in online center. The young people in the remote regions of Armenia are very interested in our project and they wish to have active participation in it to obtain knowledge and skills on the sphere of media. There are also villages where the Internet connection is not available for young people, they haven’t computers but they have great desire to be members in online center. We would like to help them to solve that problem. For solving the mentioned problems we work out different projects and apply for various donor organizations to support these young people.

Zartonk-89 NGO implements Online Olympiad program for school age children. Olympiad is implemented in various spheres, where the learners present their research and creative works. The aim of the Olympiad is to assist in teenagers’ research ability enhancement with the effective usage of Information Technologies. Olympiad is held in www.armolimp.am. The organization has already implemented Online Olympiad on human rights and journalism spheres. The closing day of the Olympiad was held on 10 December 2011 in Human Rights Day. The best tasks were awarded prizes. In the result of Olympiad New media will be used as a training and educational tool. The teenagers will use the Internet more effectively which will assist in their thinking, creative abilities and they will learn about the usage of new media opportunities and effectiveness. Olympiad will assist in free speech; will create a direct environment for communication. Participating in Olympiad the participants rise new ideas, realize them and acquire professional experiences. It is very important as nowadays the young people use the Internet as an entertainment place and by means of online Olympiad the creative activities of the beneficiaries are increased and media is used as an educational resource. The beneficiaries begin to raise the problems of their community and region, present suggestions, try to solve the problems and have results using the Internet and ICT resources. New media = new education, new spirit and positive result. The children participate in online Olympiad with great pleasure. This project is ongoing: To implement such project, it is pleasure and hard work, as we need resources and financial assistance, and your investment can change everything. I think you realize the project necessity and effectiveness in our society, especially among teenagers.
