Tablets Bring Dropped-Out Students Back To School

We are pleased to say that in 2021, we delivered 3500 computer tablets to 51 junior/senior high schools.

To begin, I want to talk about students dropping out of school.  Many of the students who had dropped out, or were in danger of dropping out, returned to schools motivated by using this new technology.

We have seen that some students who have difficulties doing or wanting to do their homework, now due to this new resource they do it more effectively and quickly.

Many of the teachers have been encouraging recreational and assignment reading; but there are also students who have read on their own, beyond the readings assigned by teachers.

We could also see that some parents who were initially afraid to take the tablet because of the responsibility that it meant at home, decided to take it after they saw that the other students were progressing better and more productively than their children.

Among the things that we can observe in the teachers is that they are happy and motivated with the software especially because the students like it much. We receive expressions from some teachers that the resource is serving themselves as reinforcement, mostly in mathematics. 

As I said, at the beginning of this project, the learning curve normally takes between 3 to 6 months.  We have great hopes for the success of the program once the adaptation period is over and the learning curve has passed.
