Interested in the details? Read on below.

We will also be introducing the team behind this. One post at a time!

Look forward to sharing more details with you all.





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.



1. Project

DAY 1 

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? 


DAY 2+

free to do what they want

use notebooks as a "whiteboard" for ideas

presentations will be made with Haiku Decks



DAY 30

after 30 days see how far they have gotten

maybe new topics

maybe move hands on - coding? 

aggressive goals 



2. Guest Speakers

bring 1 spekar in per month

talk on any topic

no limitations

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

also, documentaries 



4. Grade 4

in addition to grade 5, start expanding to grade 4

we have built a tech lab, let others use it too
