To overcome poverty and function effectively in the emerging global economy, one must master a new set of knowledge and competencies. These include basic academic skills such as literacy, foreign language, math and science skills and the ability to use information and communication technology. We plan to use computers, software, videos and other audio-visual equipment as tools for improving basic skills in reading and writing and for providing comprehensive training in the use of computers.
We will operate the computer lab as a library where students enrolled in any school in the rural area can come in and sign up for computer lab usage. For the most part, the students will make their own discoveries of things to do on the computer.
Students will learn how to create, apply, analyze and synthesize knowledge working individually or in groups to accomplish computer-based projects. Effective use of technology will lead to significant gains in reading and language skills.
