Peru Trip a Success!

The annual trip to Peru was a great success. Jim Cortez and David Rice completely retooled the computer lab at Collegio Miguel Pro and dramatically increased the internet experience of the students. Lolly Chinn created and taught tutorials, in spanish, and forged amazing friendships with nearly every student at the school-- I have never seen such smiles! And through the persistence and leadership of alums Teresa Win and Alberto Yepez, a major push was made to  help teachers integrate technology into the classroom. Two teachers won laptops as part of a contest, five have newly developed teaching units that integrate technology, and terms like Sitios de Google, and computacion de la nube are the new buzz.
