In the fast moving life of the modern world today computers hold tremendous significance. Many of us will feel crippled without a computer, as we have gotten so used to this machine. Having a good working knowledge of computers can secure better job prospects, in this age and time computer knowledge is a must. However around five billion people globally do not have access to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and are therefore excluded from the global information economy and remain locked into poverty.
We at Travel to Teach are proud to offer our volunteers the chance to teach Computer Studies in developing world countries around the globe.
In Santa Tecla, El Salvador we have a computer project where volunteers collaborate with local teachers to teach children and youths IT skills. El Salvadorian's are very keen to learn computer skills as basic IT knowledge is very helpful in improving their future job prospects, but access to qualified computer teachers in poor schools is very limited. Volunteers can help by training children and young people in computer projects including hardware and software basics, Microsoft Office programs, the Internet and educational games. Our volunteers can combine computer teaching in El Salvador with teaching English.
