Opportunity Details


PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND IMPACT

Educating underprivileged children is key to development and ranks as our top priority. Local classroom populations frequently reach up to 150 students. As a result, many children lack the individual attention required to succeed. To address this crisis, we staff local schools during the academic year with additional teachers to provide educational expertise and to alleviate the large, student-teacher ratios in under-resourced schools. Our staff also facilitate free, after-school tutoring
programs to supplement local students’ educational progress. During the holidays, we operate summer school classes, which are highly attended by local children. In order to develop the professional skills of local educators, experteers also design and facilitate seminars on best educational practices

Hello, I am interested in your program. I need to include instructional technology in my volunteering, so I wonder whether there are technologies you would consider implementing, that I might instruct your teachers and/or students about. Skype in the classroom, perhaps?
