School Pilot Overview
This cluster of schools will be in our first group of implementations using the Digital Learning Hub approach.
In the first implementation phase, we are planning two types of pilot projects: one designed for larger schools that can support their own computer lab(s). The second, more suitable for rural locations, will include a fixed building that will be shared by and meet the needs of multiple village schools. Time in this building will be scheduled and split between schools that share it, and the lab’s resources can be opened for community use when the schools are not using it.
This approach involves building a separate building that is in an equally convenient location for all schools sharing it. It will contain a computer lab, an equipment room, a storage closet and a small office area that can be used for student counseling.
