We emphasize learning by doing, training teachers, and including parents in the education of their children. Our curriculums focus on improving English language skills, using computers for everyday tasks, and employing the internet for both research and exploration far beyond the geographic and psychological barriers of the students’ lives. We prioritize "Information Technology"; each student, from preschool to fifth grade, receives a personal computer to use in school and at home. We use computers to bring forth the creative energies of previously marginalized communities. We also concentrate on teaching English, the universal of business and technology, and leadership in order to build confidence and develop teamwork skills.
We've developed an innovative curriculum for preschool through 11th grade using One Laptop Per Child in grades 1-5 and Intel Classmate computers and conventional computers at the higher levels.
The foundation is currently developing the VUELA (Taking Flight) Project to use the laptops in new, innovative ways to improve their education.
We encourage both teachers and students to use the computers to improve their research abilities and to develop critical thinking and leadership skills. The students learn to work as a team and to follow a plan from its inception to its completion. English is taught using SMART Boards which are interactive whiteboards allow teachers to project anything from their computer screen onto the board.
The Marina Orth Foundation has been training teachers in computer technology since 2005. Teachers now use computers routinely to communicate, assign homework, file grades and schedule meetings. The Foundation is also training the teachers to use educational software to enrich their teaching methods in the classroom.
