Knowledge, Learning, Community

What's interesting about this development effort in the Philippines is the combination of internet, pedagogy and hardware. "Schools covered by the program receive a) infrastructure support and free internet for 2 years, b) Project-Based Learning and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) training for teachers, and c) a GFS mobile cart, which contains gadgets like netbooks, tablets, projectors, and Globe Prepaid Pocket WiFi that can be used to teach different subjects both inside and outside the classroom." I think it's a step forward to realize that simply using computers in a traditional classroom will not result in the best benefits from the technology.
