THE DIGITAL DIVIDE
Technology has become a staple of every day life, but it has also become a staple of education. Most students in the United States have access to computer labs, laptops, tablets, but students in less developed nations do not have access to such luxuries.
Rural children don't have the same access as urban students. Due to a lack of computers in rural areas, computer processes are taught on white boards instead of through hands-on experience with computers.
However, the world is quickly becoming dependent on technology, and a basic knowledge of computers is critical in today's age. We hope that by distributing some used computers to schools in Ghana, the student to computer ratio will decrease significantly. Ideally, the computer to student ratio in our partner schools will be shrunk to 10:1.
