Abstract

This paper introduces a new approach to diffuse Information Technology culture in school or a teacher's college we call "Passport". Our student-teachers are taking the "Passport" system into a school and are going to use it to empower children that where identified by the school as children with special needs in the scholastic level or their social adaptation. Our students are training these children to become the school's Information Technology support, training and diffusion team through the use of the "Passport" system. This paper presents an ongoing research that is aimed to study the implementation of the "Passport" system to diffuse and integrate Information Technology culture while improving self-image and social adaptation of children with special needs through the delegation of status and responsibility in a field associated in general with the high achievers.
