Òmnia Network:

We have the Classroom of technologies of the Adult School Verneda thanks to Agora project with the Òmnia project of the Generalitat of Catalonia.

For us, the computer isn’t inaccessible or difficult to understand, but a tool that everyone can use. At Òmnia we learn the possibilities and advantages that Information Technology and Communication bring us in our daily lives.The main objective is that people see technology not as an end in itself but as a working tool to get more information on the topic that interests them, want to learn and so on.

The technology classroom Omnia is managed by a committee of ICTs. One of our dreams is to achieve a much greater extent Òmnia in the neighborhood, a Omnia 100 where it can be done much more training in new technologies from more participants.
