e-learning projects in Peru
There are 3 main e-learning projects in Peru.
1. The “Huarazcaran Project” which is called “Innovative classroom” now. Participating schools have a classroom with computers to work with.
2. The “Distance learning Project” in rural areas.
3. The “Laptop XO Project” (see OLPC Peru) was launched in 2007 in Arahuay (pilot project) and spread out to all peruvian regions with the vision to include all peruvian public rimary schools by 2011. Each child (and each teacher) has its own Laptop.
WeDo is a Pilot project in education with robots in Peru. The project is launched in the Region of Cusco, Piura, Lima and Ancash.

Juan’s projects with hand puppets
Juan teaches the 5th grade (2009) at Shancayan’s primary school Huaraz/Ancash. He and his pupils create plays in their selfmade hand puppet theatre.
Here you can see what Juan and his class is doing with the laptop. (Aquí una muestra de los que se puede hacer con poco presupuesto y mucha imaginación en nuestro Perú de cada día.)
