Challenge

Haiti has faced many man-made & natural challenges. Haitians have relied on other nations to help them face those challenges. The post earthquake challenge presents a tremendous opportunity to provide Haiti hope from within through the development of Haitians' greatest natural resource: its children. We believe that the greatest need to surmount Haiti's challenges lies in education that utilizes 21st century technology while promoting problem solving, leadership, & collaboration.

Solution

We will provide direct instruction and collaboration through a joint wiki platform between students in the USA and students in Haiti. We will help Haitian students utilize 21st century educational technology to enable problem solving & leadership.

Long-Term Impact

This project has the potential to create, collaborative, tech savvy leadership from within Haiti. It can promote distance-learning availability to both children and adults. It can serve as model for other schools around the globe to replicate.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
