30 DAY PLAN
This is what we will try to do. We have to get this right. If we do, we will have a running start in making a dramatic impact on the life of these kids and set them up for something great.
show a simple video around "what is the internet?"
then show a simple video around "what is a presentation"
also, show some great sample presentations
then split in 4 groups (if they aren't in them already)
assign each one a topic - this is what TED Prize winner Sugata calls "big questions"
we are going to take it to the next level
and give them 30 days to work on a presentation
here are the 4 questions
1) what is success?
2) what is wordpress?
3) how does google work?
4) what makes art great?
free to do what they want
use notebooks as a "whiteboard" for ideas
presentations will be made with Haiku Decks
after 30 days see how far they have gotten
maybe new topics
maybe move hands on - coding?
2. Guest Speakers
bring 1 spekar in per month
talk on any topic
we will blog about it too!
anyone visiting Lahore and wants to speak?
3. Movie Night
e.g. inside/out is supposed to be deep - how human emotions work
4. Grade 4
in addition to grade 5, start expanding to grade 4
we have built a tech lab, let others use it too
5. Blog Posts
