Gulmit, Jun3 18: Students and teachers at the Federal Government Girls High School, Gulmit, Gojal Tehsil of upper Hunza Valley, were introduced to the world of internet, Facebook and other social media.
The session had been organized in view of the increasing importance of social media and its ability to bring people together, across the divide of time and space. The students learnt about the technology, its applications and its importance in the process of learning.
It is ironic, however, that the locals in the entire Gojal valley, of which Gulmit is the Tehsil Headquarters, has no proper internet connection. The people use their cell phones and Edge Technology sticks to access internet, at the cost of time and money.
The teachers advised students to intelligently accept the tools and technologies and use them to enhance their knowledge of the world and the changes going around.
The School’s IT instructors, Kiramat Shah and Mir Baz Khan besides talking about the internet, also introduced a Facebook page of the school which has been joined by more than 600 alumni from different parts of the world within a month.
