school resources (facilities, technology, well-educated staff) can provide educational and retraining opportunities for the community.
The community as curriculum
Study of the community in its various dimensions.
Students generate information for community development by conducting needs assessments, studying and monitoring environmental and land-use patterns, and by documenting local history through interviews and photo essays.
Developing entrepreneurial skills
Students not only identify potential service needs in their rural communities, but actually establish a business to address those needs.
The case of satellite broadband internet
Let’s imagine that satellite broadband connectivity is made available to the school
The teacher should be encouraged to:
turn it into advantage and opportunity for all
promote the development of a new culture among local citizens
The teacher can turn the school into a “Learning Hub”, a gateway to knowledge and lifelong learning which will be open to everyone in the community. Contact us to give you examples and ideas!
