We recently hosted our first AARP TEK workshop in South Burlington, Vermont. Participants were able to interact with AARP RealPads and were the first group of Vermonters to learn from TEK program curriculum. This workshop was part of our ongoing relationship with the AARP national office and allowed Technology For Tomorrow to provide feedback on their curriculum and help shape its evolution, while also gaining insight into AARP's next generations of technology.

Parent University:
Eighteen new Americans attended the first T4T workshop hosted in partnership with Parent University and the Burlington School District. Participants explored Burlington High School's website, learning to navigate through the departments and categories, allowing these families to create a stronger connection to their child and his or her education. The workshop was attended by individuals originally from four other countries and the presentation was translated into Burmese and Nepalese.

Distance Learning:
Last quarter, Vijay Desai (member, Board of Directors) visited Honduras, traveling with   Pure Water for the World. As a member of the field team, in one short week, Vijay helped install water filtration for 37 homes and a community septic system, and helped outreach to local citizens on the need and value of medications for water-borne illnesses that are decimating the youngest population, distributing medicines to fight bacterial and parasitic invaders. 
He ended the week with a successful work session with representatives of the Tegucigalpa school system, arranging to conduct distance learning pilots between high school students in Vermont, and their counterparts in Honduras. Focus will be on Vermont Spanish-language students helping teach the Hondurans English, math and science. This follow-on effort will be coordinated by Technology for Tomorrow (T4T), as an extension of its technology-training by high-school students.
