OPEN UP THE WORLD TO STUDENTS ON LA GONÂVE
Computer literacy is now required curriculum by Haiti’s Ministry of Education in middle and high schools.
A computer lab enlarges the classroom learning space and exposes students to academic resources from around the world. Computer skills promote language proficiencies and enable students to engage in stimulating dialogue with students from other nations, creating a global learning community. Teachers receive increased access to valuable information for student learning and to online teacher training opportunities
EVACE International has built a computer lab in a 20′ shipping container as a way to provide computer access in a dust-free, temperature controlled and secure environment in remote communities.
To support an ideal temperature, the container has been refitted with specialized insulation and an air conditioner unit mounted on the back wall. Roofing provides an additional means to reduce heat on the container. The container is bolted to a concrete platform that protects it further from dust, water, and natural disasters. The open end of the container has steel and glass doors to provide light and security. Training modules on basic computer skills accompany the lab.
EVACE has donated a prefabricated lab to La Gonâve Haiti Partners for use on the Haitian island of Gonâve at St. Francis Campus in Anse-a-Galets. Funds are still needed for refurbished tablets, chairs, internet booster and generator, as well as shipping costs.
