Educational Technology in Rural Areas
This case study shows how BrainPOP supports a new educational model in the rural area of Haiti and illustrates the power of educational technology for this community.
Students at L’Ecole de Choix in Mirebalais, Haiti, come from homes of extreme poverty where daily life is difficult. Most rural Haitian schools are desperate for basic resources including electricity, textbooks, and certified teachers. A typical teacher in rural Haiti does not use technology in the classroom, and many have never used a computer themselves, so elementary students have little chance of achieving technology literacy. L’Ecole de Choix brings an entire new educational environment to this community, with a school model based on student-centered techniques, highly trained teachers and technology support.DocumentPDF
