Слайд 1

Hi My name is Mark Pinoli and I’m the CEO of the Logged On Foundation.

Слайд 2

We founded LOGGED ON in 2011 with the mission of helping schools in rural Nepal by bringing computers and the internet.

Слайд 3

We want all children to realise their POTENTIAL no matter where they are in the WORLD.

Слайд 4

A powerful way is with a GREAT EDUCATION and we thought that computers could help.

Слайд 5

Computers are revolutionising the way children receive an education in affluent countries.

Слайд 6

What about children in rural Nepal?

Слайд 7

What about children everywhere in the world?

Слайд 8


Слайд 9

We were confident before we started. We knew that it wouldn’t be easy. That we could help make a difference.

Слайд 10

But we weren’t sure We read about the failures because . . .

Слайд 11

…Nepal is a challenging environment…

Слайд 12

…where the infrastructure is poor and the power supply can be off for most of the day,...

Слайд 13

… where technical knowledge & teacher capacity for using computers in education is generally low,…

Слайд 14

and Nepal is in the world’s top 10 countries for slow internet.

Слайд 15

in this environment, how can we succeed in helping with education using computers? We thought

Слайд 16

Just giving away computers is not a good idea, you need to take some responsibility for providing ongoing training and support.

Слайд 17

A few training courses just won’t do. You need to build capacity and this can take years.

Слайд 18

You can’t just focus on building computer literacy skills, computers are a vehicle that can take you on a journey.

Слайд 19

The internet is a world of almost endless learning.

Слайд 20

And we think that education should be more than just being told about the world.

Слайд 21

With teacher guidance, children can be given the opportunity to pursue their interest independently...

Слайд 22

...where learning can happen through self-instruction and peer-shared knowledge.

Слайд 23

Build a sustainable computing environment that will allow children to go on a journey of learning and discovery. THE CHALLENGE

Слайд 24

1. DETERMINATION To overcome the challenges & difficulties so communities have access to the information, skills & technologies they need to provide a quality education for their children. 3 What do you need for that?

Слайд 25

Before we started one thing was clear, there was a school in Nepal that was DETERMINED.

Слайд 26

Because why would they try so hard to use these computer for education?

Слайд 27

In the context of daily life in rural Nepal...

Слайд 28

. . . where there is basic infrastructure and a general lack of resources in schools, . . .

Слайд 29

… why would you, of all things, want computers and the internet?

Слайд 30

Because there is a genuine belief that computers & the internet will create OPPORTUNITIES for children.

Слайд 31

So we installed a COMPUTER CENTRE at the Shree Bhumeshwor School in the village of Astam.

Слайд 32

we have been working closely with the community,… Over the years

Слайд 33

… helped with training & provided support,...

Слайд 34

… and helped to build the capacity of teachers to use computers for education.

Слайд 35

We have started expanding our program of installing Computer Centres & providing support to more schools.

Слайд 36

We are building Computer Centres in clusters where groups of schools can help support each other and we help the schools.

Слайд 37

With funding, we will continue to do more schools and we don’t want to stop.

Слайд 38

“Connecting children to a world of opportunity” We say we are about LOGGEDON Foundation CONNECTING CHILDREN TO A WORLD OF OPPORTUNITY

Слайд 39

What does that mean?

Слайд 40

EDUCATION is widely regarded as being at the core… of socioeconomic development because it holds the potential of CONNECTING people with OPPORTUNITIES that can improve their livelihoods. Information technologies…”

Слайд 41

…have the potential to transform and drastically improve the state of education that exists in the developing world.” (United Nations)

Слайд 42

So we want to connect schools to the opportunities that education can bring. Computers deliver a rich source of educational material for the benefit of teachers & students.

Слайд 43

Children are being taught computer science and DIGITAL LITERACY So they have the skills & knowledge to be able to fully participate in the world.

Слайд 44

Where students can go and Google. Anil wanted to learn about astronomy.

Слайд 45

There were NO astronomy book in the library, so we showed him the NASA website.

Слайд 46

We are helping to connect children to online learning communities (www.samuday.guru) The SAMUDAY website is allowing children to connect to each other… so they can share stories about their lives, hopes and aspirations.

Слайд 47

where children in Nepal are connecting with their peers in Malaysia, India & Australia. We are part of RMIT University’s eTutor program

Слайд 48

Where students from Morang South Primary (Australia) & the Shree Bhumeshwor School (Nepal) are developing friendships & an understanding what life is like on both sides of the internet.

Слайд 49

We are delivering project-based learning initiatives...

Слайд 50

where students are learning to contribute content to the web. Visit Astam’s first WEBSITE. sblss.blogspot.com

Слайд 51

Not just using technology! Also through our Scholarship Program who are struggling with their education. We are providing scholarships to children

Слайд 52

But wait, there is more!

Слайд 53

We are building the capacity of teachers so they can go on to help other communities.

Слайд 54

Raju Pariyar Who is from the Dalit Community, became Chairman of the Astam Computer Centre Committee. Went on to become… 1. Ward Chairman. 2. Astam School Management Committee Member. 3. Dalit Welfare Management Committee. 4. Water Treatment Committee. LEADERSHIP CREATING OPPORTUNITIES in the community

Слайд 55

We are helping to develop courses that focus on the need of village women’s groups, and . . .

Слайд 56

... helping to bring digital literacy to the wider community with our partners.

Слайд 57

Because we all live in a technological culture where literacy & numeracy alone are no longer enough.

Слайд 58

Without digital skills, inequalities between rural & urban, and developing & developed world will deepen.

Слайд 59

We don’t like divides, discrimination or lack of OPPORTUNITY.

Слайд 60

2. CREATING OPPORTUNITIES That come from a good education. Having technical, management, teaching and leadership skills. Having access to information & knowledge. 3 1. DETERMINATION

Слайд 61

Why Nepal? So why bother?

Слайд 62

It’s complicated!

Слайд 63

A connection with the Himalayas started in 1997...

Слайд 64

and it’s continuing in the Himalayas in 2014. Those connections just keep growing, . . .

Слайд 65

...and it’s a privilege to be involved with DEADICATED & COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE.

Слайд 66

And we are driven by the principal that every person should help give others a hand-up to a position which they themselves enjoy.

Слайд 67

Along the way, there have been many set backs & difficulties.

Слайд 68

But there are days you know it’s WORTH IT.

Слайд 69

And the children love learning on the computers, we just can’t keep them away,…

Слайд 70

and it feels great to help out.

Слайд 71

Because of our work, we have begun to appreciate this well known statement...

Слайд 72

... "it take a whole village to raise a child."

Слайд 73

Well, we’re helping in the village too!

Слайд 74

Not just by physically being in the village...

Слайд 75

…but by connecting communities to the GLOBAL VILLAGE…

Слайд 76

…where more people can be involved in creating EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES.

Слайд 77

“it take a village to raise a child," the global More than every before, a global village with many different communities.

Слайд 78

We are CONNECTING communities in Nepal FACE-TO-FACE.

Слайд 79

CONNECTING children to each other through online learning communities.

Слайд 80

CONNECTING our supporters to the work and to the communities we support in Nepal at our fundraising events.

Слайд 81

CONNECTING supporters through our Scholarships Program.

Слайд 82

CONNECTING teachers & schools to each other and stimulating new ways of teaching & learning using computers either online…

Слайд 83

or in the villages of Nepal.

Слайд 84

We are also connecting with communities around the world through our website & social media.

Слайд 85

But wait, there is more!

Слайд 86

We are helping to keep FAMILIES CONNECTED. Our Computer Centres are communications facilities too!

Слайд 87

"Everyone has a right to communicate. Communication is a fundamental social process which enables individuals and communities to exchange information and opinions. It is a basic human need and the foundation of all social organization.” UNESCO

Слайд 88


Слайд 89

3. CONNECTING COMMUNITIES Bring communities together, either in person or through the internet, so we can all share the responsibility for creating educational opportunities for CHILDREN. 3 1. DETERMINATION 2. CREATE OPPORTUNITIES

Слайд 90

You also need a VISION and a commitment to it!

Слайд 91

“Vision without action is just a dream, action without vision just passes the time, and vision with action can change the world.” Nelson Mandela

Слайд 92

What , there are four secrets?

Слайд 93

VISION 3 NO! Is what you need to make a change in the world no matter how big or small, along with… The DETERMINATION to CREATE OPPORTUNITIES and to CONNECT COMMUNITIES to each other.

Слайд 94

Help with the education of children in less privileged parts of the world. Bring communities together, either online or face-to-face, so we can all share what we believe is a global responsibility for helping to create opportunities for children. Connect communities to the opportunities that are available through technology. The Logged On Foundation is DETERMINED to:

Слайд 95
