Turin 2006: educational kit and website for kids
Some 7,500 Italian primary and secondary schools will receive educational kits compiled by the Organising Committee for the XX Olympic Winter Games in Turin (TOROC). The initiative is meant to familiarise students with the programme, spirit and values of the Olympic Games.
Two versions of six books
The kit has two versions: one for elementary and one for secondary schools. It consists of six books, 42 educational insets, a CD-ROM and a videotape. The kit offers a multitude of options that allow teachers to integrate it easily in the educational programme.
Five Olympic rings
The first volume is about the history of the Games. The other five, each marked with one of the colours of the five Olympic rings, deal with health and security, sport and environment, science and technology, culture and human rights, and sports disciplines.
Website for kids
TOROC has recently launched a new website (www.kidsvillage.torino2006.org) to enable Italian children to find all the necessary information and intriguing facts related to the Olympic Games as a whole and the Olympic Winter Games specifically.
Powerful means of communication
“The website is a powerful means of communication, exchange and dissemination of valuable experience”, TOROC Director Roberto Daneo said. Apart from the section reserved entirely for kids, the website has pages providing business and institutional information, he added.
