The nature of our project requires active participation from various stakeholders.
Professionals, namely teachers or educators, have an opportunity to showcase their ideas at an international level. They can share their innovations and teaching methods to benefit other schools/communities/countries. Many teachers have been working on applications of technology in education but remain unknown to the society and world, and some of them do not receive enough support. They can now also learn from other teachers sharing the same dedication towards technology in education and help one another to improve current innovations.
Children from rural areas or urban poor who lack access to education will now receive an opportunity to learn online when resources are not available. Children can now learn from the online volunteers consisting of teachers and youths and also search for their own resources in our database. As our project expands in the future, these children are able to connect with children from other communities who are in similar situations. Children can also help their parents to market their products (such as indigenous handicraft etc.) at our online store.
Youths have the opportunity to become volunteers who will make an impact to the lives of those children. They can prepare prerecorded lessons/educational games etc or similar innovations like the teachers’ and submit it to our database to benefit the children. This will also benefit their character building and we will award certificates to acknowledge their contributions. Youths play a part in making the environment conducive for learning for all.
As each submission by innovative teachers or students reach a certain quality and rating, or for each time somebody scored full mark for the ‘featured educational game’ , MicroEDU will receive a certain amount of funding from Corporate Sponsors, and we will provide them with great advertisement and publicity services.
Individuals and small enterprises can also support us through purchasing these products. These small enterprises will receive publicity as well. Thus, we can ensure the sustainability of our project and continue to help more children from other parts of the world to have more learning opportunities.
