Intel Corporation announced plans to train an additional 10 million teachers in developing nations during the next five years in the use of technology to advance learning.

The plan expands Intel's "Teach to the Future" initiative, which has trained more than 3 million teachers in 35 countries since 2000.

As part of the expanded program, Intel also announced that it will donate 100,000 personal computers to classrooms in developing nations.

The Teach to the Future project incorporates the use of the Internet, Web page design, and student projects as learning tools. To complement the education program, Intel works with governments, industry, individuals, and organizations to create an environment that supports social and economic advancement.
