Technology and Education for All Children

by Teamchildren

Summary

Poverty and educational success are directly related. The achievement gap starts before preschool. We have distributed over 14,000 low-cost, high-quality refurbished computers, loaded with extraordinary early learning software, to individual families, schools, and organizations so that we can change the future for disadvantaged kids in Pennsylvania. We need to raise funds to expand our program... and eventually bring technology and early education to needy kids around the globe.

Challenge

Low income children start school with serious deficits that are never addressed in schools since most teachers are not trained in how poverty and stress affect the brain. Most disadvantaged kids start school with a 75% vocabulary/ experiential deficits. They have no foundation in math and do not connect to symbolic math. They also have no exposure to music or foreign languages already appreciated by wealthier peers.

Solution

When families come to our technology center, we not only give them a computer for their home use, we instruct them on how to use the computer. We explain our multitude of proprietary learning programs so that their kids can get the most out of their new educational technology and software. We also introduce them additional instructional links to explore.

Long-Term Impact

In a relatively short period of time, underprivileged kids can not only reach learning milestones on time, but start school ahead of the curve. This will significantly impact their continued academic success in school, gain them entrance to college, and break the cycle of poverty. Our positive impact in the local community can be replicated to all needy children around the world.
