International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v12 n2 p195-205 2016
This research seeks to analyse and propose a solution to support classroom-based teaching in the Department of Chocó, Colombia, which is located in a rural area and has been the subject of many social projects for the development of its people. Due to the disparities in different regions of the country, the education sector is forced to look for new working environments that are suitable for rural communities who were left out in the development. For this reason, a Virtual Learning Community is proposed in the to improve the educational conditions and relate how the use of technology and Open Educational Resources could contribute to it. The participants of this study were the teachers and students of the school. Results show that teacher training is essential so that they can act as leaders in their community.
