Project


Project Name: Digital Implementation Globally - DIG

Summary

Based on the Habitat for Humanity organization, DIG is a student organization that travels to different developing countries to help implement and set up technology for education in schools in order to bridge the connection gap between education in developed countries and in developing countries.

Project Planning


Use the following as a starting point only, you do not need to stick to this template

What?

What is the social issue? What are the outcomes? How would the students be assessed? What will they be doing?
SOCIAL ISSUE: Education gap (due to technology) between education in developed countries and in developing countries
OUTCOMES: Students from developed countries would volunteer to travel to developing countries to help set up the "building blocks" for schools there - they would help set up learning technology there (i.e. One Laptop per Child laptops) and then work with the students and teachers there to find out the best way to use such technology in the classroom. The volunteer students would connect the students of developed countries and remain connected to them even after the volunteer groups leave.
ASSESSMENT: The students would basically be assessed on how much

Who?

Ages, types of students, type of course(s) or subjects that this could appropriately be used with.

When?

What time of year (state in months). Will it have simultaneous events? Consider holidays, etc. Is there a "perfect" time for this (also think about the social issue you have in mind.)

Where?

What type of websites and tools will you use. Hyperlink to the tools and give examples of what would be done. How will students interact? Where will they be sharing, working, collaborating? All tools used.

Why?

Why is this project important. Include statistics and facts about why this is a needed project. "Sell" this to the world about why it is an issue that should be addressed and why this particular project can make a difference.

How?

Any other implementation items that you wish to share. What challenges will this project face as schools look at implementing it? How will you overcome obstacles and arguments against this project or methods used? How will it be managed and facilitated by teachers? Will students be leaders? How will you know if this is done well? How will you encourage student participation? How will you motivate? How will you know if the project is successful?

The Future

What needs to be done next? Are there any topics that need to be researched further to implement this idea?
