The International Commission on the Futures of Education, of UNESCO, in its latest report (2020) motivates us to move toward education beyond the classroom, expecting hybrid forms of teaching-learning to develop people, in different spaces, modalities, and times.
The Covid-19 pandemic revealed the new reality of the educational, labor, and social systems. Unfortunately, our ability to remain relevant in this new context is directly linked to the quality of education that we access.

We need to take Learning Everywhere.

  • Our goal is for OLPC's Digital Learning Ecosystem to provide Tosepan School Community access to new learning channels so that students and teachers can share and find solutions to their local and daily problems.
  • Computational Thinking Skills Program, Continuous Professional Development for teachers in digital skills, Measurement & Evaluation, and remote Technical Advice will be provided to strengthen the ecosystem.
