Abstract

To improve the computer kindergarten program at the Duang Prateep Foundation (DPF) in the Klong Toey slum of Bangkok, an evaluation of its state and interviews with staff and teachers were undertaken. Needs for continued teacher education, along with addition of new computers and curriculum, were discovered. To address these issues, we retrained the teachers, developed a manual, and more than doubled the number of computers and software packages. These efforts sought to create a self-sustaining program.
