Ethiopian Visitors Learn How Moss Point Schools Are Using Technology

Some Ethiopian dignitaries were on the coast Wednesday to check out the Moss Point School District.

The group is part of Cisco Systems' 21st Century School Program. Cisco Systems provides grant money to help fund technology in schools around the world.

Organizers say the purpose of this trip is to show the Ethiopian guests the technological advancements Moss Point schools have made since Katrina.

"Things that have been very difficult to learn before, are now becoming easier through technology. We want to see how technology is used in educational institutions here so we can use it for ourselves in our country," Dr. Tasse Abye said.

The Ethiopian Group will also travel to New Orleans this week to visit with different universities and schools.
