Project

Intelligent Rural Schools

Intelligent Rural Schools

This program will utilize point-to-point wireless technology to bring internet to rural communities, helping connect them to the information age.

Goals

Our main goal has always been to provide the resources necessary for children of rural communities to obtain a solid education under optimal conditions.

The internet has become a fundamental tool for the education of every child in today’s digital age.

The project includes:

1.- Providing high speed internet connection transmitted from Huatulco to the communities through point-to-point antennas.

2.- Training of teachers on the use of classroom technology.

3. Equipping classrooms with iPad tablets and Smart TVs.

The Challenge

Bridging the digital divide by eventually connecting 120 schools in the five school districts that work with the Foundation.

We hope to ultimately reach over 2,000 students and over 100 teachers each year.

Phases

PHASE ONE
1. Connect 22 schools with 8-10MB speed internet.
2. Load online and offline educational contact on tablets to be used by students and teachers.
3. Allow students after-hours access to tablets so they can continue their studies.
4. Create a digital platform connecting all CONAFE teachers so they may share classroom experiences and best practices.
5. Explore opportunities to use this technology to benefit each community in additional ways.
LATER PHASES
• Installation of two additional transmission towers
• Connect 40 more schools to the network
