LEARNING LAB

The children of Laos deserve the possibility to create

a better future for themselves

The Learning Lab is an interactive "learning by doing" system where the student educate themselves by roaming through pedagogic apps on a digital tablet.

 

Instead of serving subjects as one absolute truth, we promote discussion and critical thinking. We never put forward definite opinions, but rather guide and ask questions to help the children reflect on their own perceptions. 

 

We will not only encourage discussions of values and awareness with the children, but also promote dialogue concerning these topics with other teachers and with the community around our organization. We want to be a place advocating peace and equality through open reflection and discussion.

We want the children to learn by doing, appreciate reflection and think critically, which is not the typical learning style in Asia. Valuable education is given to children from around 8-16 years old and their local teachers. The education is based on the child's’ personal level, and our focus is always on quality, rather than of quantity. We emphasize the importance of following up their individual learning frequency.

IT

IT is important in order to close the digital gap between the rich and the poor and it is a great tool for self-help and further education for the villagers.

English

Tourism provides Lao people with a possibility to step into a better future. English language understanding can help them in setting up new tourist businesses. 

Awareness

We share information on gender equality, sustainability, environment, health, racism, the UN Convention of Children Rights and human rights in general.

International

Volunteers visit us to give the students a better understanding of the international environment, in addition to bridging people across various cultures. 

We welcome volunteers to join us in Laos as teachers to help our local team provide our students with the tools they need to create the future they deserve.
