Keywords:strategic innovation, technology, education, teaching-learning process, asynchronous virtual training
Every country seeks development and good results for education, but serving students from very remote areas can be complex. In Peru there are companies that support educational centers through material resources, but rarely they bet on improving quality and providing care to less favored communities. Many times the State does not have the capacity to bring quality education to the most remote regions, so the help and commitment of private companies becomes a key and indispensable element for the development of towns, especially those that do not have with the necessary resources for this purpose or due to difficulties inherent to their environment. The purpose of this educational project was to contribute to the improvement of high school education in remote villages, training students and teachers in educational computing and communications skills through the Internet and modern computer facilities.
This article describes an initiative that transforms the lives of members of underserved communities by providing them with access to education and training in technology.
