Abstract

There is a digital divide in Paraguay. We collaborated with the Fundación Paraguaya and teachers in Cerrito to promote technology in education. Our team first created networks with educators via WhatsApp. Interviews with educators provided feedback for the creation of further resources. We utilized these alongside the networks to refine lesson plans involving technological resources such as WhatsApp. These lesson plans and networks formed the basis of an educational technology workshop held at the Escuela Agricola. We ran the workshop alongside Fundación counterparts to promote discussions and ideas about educational technology. Our team additionally created a maintenance plan to encourage use of the networks and lesson plans. The Fundación and future WPI teams will continue this work.
