Fundación EDUCA México A.C. and its program T–EDUCA (this name, in spanish, is kind of a letter game, which would mean: we teach you) are now working together with the school Líderes del Siglo (L.I.S.I), A.C. located in Tlajomulco, a city in Jalisco state in Mexico.

It is a high school with 191 students, provides its students with services such as: parental school, counseling , adult literacy , job training , education club , estimulates sports and culture and has a soccer and judo academy. However L.I.S.I didn’t have a wide acces to technology, internet and more.

Today it is essential to incorporate technology -and guide how to use it for your own benefit-, into education. The world is more and more into new technology, and everybody needs to get used to it.

So, this school got a Virtual Learning Space, E.V.A. ( for its acronym in Spanish ) to let the new century get in.  Thanks to our donors, the best supplies on school furniture and equipment was found:

- 36 computers

- 19 double computer desks

- 35 chairs for students

- 1 chair for teacher

- 1 interactive whiteboard with an integrated projector

- 1 adapter and cable for board

- 1 Multifunctional

- 18 regulators

It only took two weeks to get fully installed. Windows 8 was chose as the operating system for the computers and teachers and students were instructed on how to handle it. The Virtual Learning Space, now a day, its open and works properly; and these students finally got a chance of a better, more rounded education.
