From the eyes of the children

While learning how to use a computer and how to create Word documents, children in the Learning and Innovation Network (RIA) explain how they arrived to the RIA and why they like it.

RIA’s learning experience from the voice of the children that you’ve helped.

My name is Ana Paola López González. I’m in 11 years old and study the 5th grade. I knew about the RIA because of my aunt Carmen studied here for two months. In the RIA you can learn a lot. My cousin Andrea and my aunty Carmen also come to classes. I like to come to my course Expedition because I get to learn what I did not know. I don’t have a computer at home and don’t have any connection to internet. I didn’t know how to use the computer before coming to RIA.  I like it here and my facilitator is very active.

My name is Diego Estrada González and I study 5th grade at the Primary School. I’m 10 years old and RIA gave me a scholarship to take a course during Easter. My cousins invited me to the RIA courses because I didn’t understand Mathematics.  Me and my cousin come to computing courses, we really like it and I will continue to come to do our homework and research for school.

MY NAME IS ROCIO HERNANDEZ ARIADNE OJEDA. I study at the school “Niños Héroes”. I’ve been coming to the RIA in Ixtlahuaca for 2 years. My mom brought me. I like the internet, the Expedition program and the Easter course.  I like my courses a lot: I learn many new things like Science, Math and Art.

What matters to me

Karen

The RIA sets itself apart from other educational and technology initiatives by giving its users the tools needed to develop digital skills: selection and development of relevant educational content, a technology-equipped learning space, a blended e-learning model with skilled instructors, and analyses of student performance to revise and improve course content.

Going beyond technological infrastructure and connectivity, the RIA provides content based on community needs and what matters to the users that come into a course.

We've also realized that RIA's students learn faster if they practice their english talking about what matters to them. In their final submit, the students could give in a video, or a podcast about a subject they chose. This is how they chose to call our attention about cyber bullyng, violence against women, etc.

Here's an example of their great work! http://youtu.be/2vIJBlz5y6k

We hope you like what your donations make possible.

RIA or Learning and Innovation Network' moms

 

Hello dear donors,

Thank you so much for your interest in this project.

It’s almost mother’s day (very important event in Mexico) and we want to share with you three videos in which RIA’s moms talk about how computing courses have helped them get the tools they need and use in their daily lives. You can even see their children playing in the back. In the RIA, people from all ages can access quality education and interact with family and friends in a positive and constructive way. 

Carmen, María and Sara learned and practiced how to create a video and upload it to Youtube and Facebook. This videos were recovered from their practice and were subtitled for you!
