Taking Technology to Takoradi
DePillis, Lydia
Educational Leadership, v63 n4 p80-81 Dec 2005-Jan 2006
High school students in Seattle's Global Technology Academy bring refurbished computers to schools and orphanages in developing areas of the world and teach young people the skills they need to advance in an increasingly information-based global marketplace. In 19 trips to date, teams of 5-15 students have taken computers and knowledge to such countries as Mozambique, Nepal, Mexico, the Philippines, Ethiopia, and Guatemala. In a recent trip to Ghana, students learned about technology as they taught those skills to others. They also learned how to respond in a socially responsible and sensitive way to a community's environmental, economic, and cultural issues.
