In 2016, we ran a very successful primary school academic reinforcement project in the small community of Cotoca. Cotoca is in the San Andres district of Beni, Bolivia. This year, we are building on that success by implementing our computer program in the secondary school. We want to develop the student’s computer skills and reinforce reading comprehension and mathematical reasoning. We are using similar methodologies as in our biblioteca projects to promote critical thinking, creativity, social/personal and environmental values by using fun, culturally relevant activities to illuminate concepts behind content.
