Una laptop por niño en escuelas rurales del Perú: Un análisis de las barreras y facilitadores
Carlos David Laura Quispe[1]

“La tecnología puede ayudar a suprimir las barreras estructurales, las distancias y las diferencias culturales y ayudar a los pobres a participar del bienestar económico. Además de crear riqueza, provocará un veloz cambio social, porque unirá y contactará a las personas del mundo entero” (Yunus 2000, p. 367)

Resumen

El Programa una laptop por niño—OLPC por sus siglas en inglés—fue implementado a principios del año 2007. El mismo año, el Ministerio de Educación a través de su Dirección General de Tecnologías Educativas comenzó a entregar las computadoras portátiles, capacitación para profesores y asistencia técnica a escuelas rurales multigrado. El programa busca mejorar la calidad de la Educación impartida a los estudiantes de Educación primaria de zonas rurales y de frontera, que se concrete en un efectivo desarrollo de las capacidades, habilidades y destrezas exigidas por el Diseño Curricular Nacional.
El objetivo que se pretende abordar a través de ésta investigación es: conocer e identificar las barreras y facilitadores que surgen de la incorporación de la computadora portátil XO en el contexto del Programa OLPC. El estudio se centra básicamente en el profesor, en particular en los docentes que forman parte del proyecto, con el propósito de buscar antecedentes que permitan responder algunas interrogantes, como: ¿Cuáles son las barreras que enfrentan los profesores, que participan del programa OLPC, al momento de integrar el recurso en sus prácticas pedagógicas? ¿Cuáles son los elementos facilitadores que apoyan a los profesores, que participan del programa OLPC, al momento de integrar el recurso en sus prácticas pedagógicas? ¿Qué necesidades e influencias reportan los profesores para lograr…...

Life in Peru

...Essay about Peru (Final Version) By: John Warren Professor: Dr. Smith ENG 090 November, 13, 2012 Peru I was born in Peru; I lived there when I was a kid, I enjoyed living in this beautiful country; the life is very different than it is in United States, people are happier and closer than Americans. Other thing that I like is the night life; Peruvians like to dance salsa, you will see a lot of people in the night clubs every weekend. One of my favorite places is The Pizza Street (la calle de las pizzas); at this place you will find the perfect combination of restaurants and night clubs. Anytime I go to Peru, my friends and I always go to parties and have fun, I would like to go back to live, it’s a lot of jobs for bilingual people, things are not too expensive, and the economy is very stable now. In Lima there is a lot of Chinese food which is called chifa (several thousand Chinese restaurants in Lima) which is not the typical Chinese restaurants that we have in America, and fast food restaurants from around the world. In Lima we eat a lot of fish and rice. In the mountains they eat a lot of potatoes. In Cuzco they eat cuy (fried guinea pig) but that is not common in Lima. The Supermarkets are pretty wow, with everything you can imagine, and most things they have for tasting, including the alcohol. Still, there are no flavored chips, for some reason, Peru has not picked up the idea of flavored potato chips, which really is beyond me. But, the chocolate is......

Poverty in Perú

...sacrificaríamos mucho si nos embarcamos en algún proyecto de ayuda. Recuerdan la campaña de navidad. No use más de 5 horas (de mis horas de almuerzo en el transcurso de dos semanas) entre coordinaciones, mails, llamadas telefónicas y un par de idas al centro de Lima para embarcar en un camión los juguetes que hicieron felices a cerca de 500 niños de Huancavelica. Que con la ayuda de algunos de ustedes y otros conocidos acá y allá, pudimos sacar adelante. Resultado niños muy pobres, muy felices. Les he venido a hablar de ustedes, les he venido a decir que no tengan miedo de ser generosos, no tengan miedo de ayudar a los demás, no sé si alguno de ustedes nació en un lugar como Gando, en Burkina Faso, la aldea de Diebedo, el del video, pero en el Perú tenemos lugares muy pobres, en una ocasión estaba en el colca en un viaje de ayuda social y una chica que viajaba con nosotros encontró a una viejita que vivía en una casa sin techo… literalmente, una casa de un cuarto… sin techo…, alguno estuvo en el Colca, 3, 800 metros de altura, se imaginan el frio y la lluvia, bueno, como yo no tenía dinero, no pude comprar la calamina y madera para el techo (unos 200 soles), pero me di cuenta que tenía oportunidades, liderazgo y capacidad de amar. Cuando volví a Arequipa, esas tres condiciones me hicieron conseguir la plata en un día. Le pusimos el techo a la abuelita. Saben porque la abuelita no tiene un cuarto con techo donde vivir, porque hay un hábito cultural, o vicio no sé cómo......

Peru

...HISTORY The history of Peru spans several millennia. Peruvian territory was home to the Norte Chico civilization, one of the oldest in the world, and to the Inca Empire, the largest state in Pre-Columbian America. It was conquered by the Spanish Empire in the 16th century, which established a Viceroyalty with jurisdiction over most of its South American domains. Independence was declared in 1821 but consolidated only after the Battle of Ayacucho, three years later. GEOGRAPHY Peru is a country on the central western coast of South America. Peru covers 1,285,220 km² (496,193 sq mi). It neighbors Ecuador and Colombia to the north, Brazil to the east, Bolivia to the southeast, Chile to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west CLIMATE The combination of tropical latitude, various mountain ranges, topography variations and two ocean currents (Humboldt and El Niño) gives Peru a large diversity of climates. DEMOGRAPHY Peru is a multicultural and multiethnic country. Peruvian census does not contain information about ethnicity so only rough estimates are available. Its population can be composed of Amerindians: 45%, mestizos: 37%, European: 15%, and Asians, Afro-Peruvians, and others: 3%.[1]. Amerindians are found in the southern Andes, though a large portion are also to be found in the southern and central coast due to the massive internal labor migration from remote Andean regions to coastal cities,during the past four decades. While the Andes are the "heart" of the......

Walker and Peru

...Walkerdescribes the state of Lima after a devastating earthquake, as well as the tsunami it caused, wrecked havoc in the mid-18th century. In Chapter One, Walker discusses the relationship between tsunamis, earthquakes, and absolutism in Lima after the natural disaster of 1746. Walker examines how the national disaster sparked a debate among Enlightenment idealist about the need to reform the city. These reforms, however, were influenced by reforms imposed by the Bourbon absolutists who encouraged a policy of social uniformity without equality. These reforms seriously weakened not only the situation of the diverse social groups in Peru, but also the power of the Church. The viceroy of Peru, Manso de Velasco imposed reforms in order to reconstruct the city and its inhabitants along new Enlightenment lines. In the second chapter of the book, Walker focuses on the events of the earthquake. According to Walker, the majority of the people believed it was the wrath of God. The religious segment of society believed that it was the sinful society of Lima which had instigated the disaster. They thought the earthquake was a premonition of future punishments that would follow, and different areas of society were blamed for the catastrophe. As the church preached about the future disasters, the city officials blamed them for the environment of superstition and fear. In chapter three, Walker discusses the urban political distribution of Lima prior to the earthquake,......

Peru Genocide

...genocide is the Peru genocide which happened many many years ago. The Peru genocide was not a well known genocide but it was still very important to Peru and it's surroundings. The genocide had many important factors and caused world reactions because of it. The Peru genocide was led by Jose Gabriel Tupac Amaru who was known as Tupac Amaru II. He was the leader of the genocide against the Spanish in Peru. The Peru genocide wasn't successful but Tupac went on in his life to being apart of Peru's struggle for their country's independence. The Peru genocide was known as Tupacs rebellion and was one of his many uprisings. The Peru genocide was about Tupac calling for an alliance among native whites, mestizos, and indigenous people against European-born Spaniards. Tupac Amaru's genocide became mainly indigenous and completely out of control. The rebellions of Americanos against Spaniards could easily become more wars against the entire white ruling class. Native-born whites in Mexico and Peru were among the last on the continent to embrace the patriot cause during the wars of independence(Tupac Amaru...). The genocide happened many years ago. While Tupac Amaru II was captured and executed in 1781, the rebellion continued for at least another year under other leaders. The beginning of the genocide was 1780 and officially ended in the end of 1781. The genocide for Tupac was not successful. The Peru genocide happened in Peru and upper Peru. Upper Peru is......

Peru

...the labor force in agriculture could in theory have helped to alleviate rural poverty by leaving higher average land holdings to those remaining in agriculture. But the absolute number of people trying to make a living from inadequate land holdings actually increased. The labor force in agriculture rose 52 percent between 1960 and 1990. In addition, emigration from agriculture exerted increasing pressure on labor markets in the cities, and the increase in rural workers kept earnings low in that sector. A growing labor force need not drive wages down and in most instances does not, provided that investment and technical change keep opening up new opportunities for productive employment fast enough to absorb the larger number of workers. Peru managed to accomplish such growth in the first post-World War II decades, but from the early 1970s the trend went downward. As more and more workers tried to survive in the service sector by selfemployment or work with families instead of formally registered firms, they created a rapidly growing informal sector. Workers in the informal sector are mostly employed, and they certainly add to national income, but their earnings are often below the poverty line. Overt unemployment that can actually be counted has been only a small part of the problem. The overt unemployment level in Lima was an estimated 7 percent in 1980, rising to 8 percent by 1990. But estimates of underemployment in part-time or very low-income activities indicate......

Peru

...Arbasak 4/6/14 Peru The first inhabitants of Peru were nomadic hunter-gatherers who lived in caves in Peru's coastal regions. Though Peru was home to many diverse indigenous cultures throughout its history, Peru is famous for the Incan culture. When someone thinks about the past of Peru, the first thought for many is Inca civilization. Peru is also well known for its archaeological wealth. Many archaeologists find Peru’s ancient sites and cultures as endlessly fascinating equal to places like Mexico, Egypt, and the Mediterranean. Peru is still very rich in its old cultural architecture, seeing these sites are very rewarding. It's the multiple layers of great civilizations that make Peru so fascinating. Cobblestone streets preserve the era of the Conquistadors, the ruins of the lost city of Machu Pichu remind travelers of the once mighty Inca Empire, and the mysterious Nazca lines that remain unexplained today. Machu Pichu is one of the great wonders of the world and its surprised me how high the mountains peak. It sits 7,970 feet (2,430 meters) above sea level on the eastern slope of the Andes and overlooks the Urubamba River hundreds of feet below. Peru is located on South America's central Pacific coast. It is the twentieth-largest nation in the world, and borders Bolivia, Brazil, and Chile, Colombia and Ecuador. Lima is the capital of Peru and is located on the central coast. The size of Peru is 1,326,074 square kilometers (512,000 square miles) so Peru is about......

Kisses on the cheek and speaking very closely are normal.  | Small talk: Small talk helps establish a base for the relationship.  Business matters should follow, but allow your host to initiate the business conversation first. | First names: Only use first names when the other party has invited you to do so.

...Her story was very interesting and truly inspiring. She got an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from Peru and was very keen on working as a field engineer. However, being a woman she was not given the opportunity to work as a field engineer and was restricted to working in the labs. Later she got an opportunity to work as an administrative manager at a company which she keenly took and then later on went on to pursue her MBA from . She specializes in strategic management, organizational design and human resources. With her abundant experience in mining she provided us valuable insights specifically into the mining industry. Peru has an enormous economic strength in the form of multiple mineral deposits and is currently ranked 4th in the world. It currently occupies 7th place among the top 10 leading mineral producing countries, with an estimated production value of US$ 27,063 million. The primary competitive advantage for Peruvian mining is its diversification of minerals being produced: copper, gold, silver, lead, zinc, tin, molybdenum, iron, cadmium, mercury, selenium, indium and other metals. It is the region’s top producer of zinc, tin, lead and gold, and occupies second place in the production of copper, silver, molybdenum, mercury, selenium, cadmium and phosphoric rock. Currently, Peru has a sufficient reserve of minerals to generate a constant flow of metal production for several decades. The high rates of production have attracted a large amount of......

Uh Oh

...“Uh oh,” is the immediate thought that comes to teens’ minds when they see the two pink lines appear on a pregnancy test. Nine months later teens are struggling to maintain their schoolwork along with raising a baby. The solution to this problem in the public school system is providing daycare services for the teen parents. This solution may seem like the perfect way to help teen parents stay in school, but this only leads to more problems. Although school daycare services ensures the safety of children and allows teens to stay in schools, these services inevitably encourages teen pregnancies. According to the CDC, in 2013, 273,105 babies were born to women between the ages of fifteen and nineteen. Most of these pregnancies were unplanned and left adolescents in a difficult situation. The biggest concern for teen parents is whether or not the teen will finish school. Many public school systems have thought of a solution to this problem, daycare service. Schools that have a daycare service allow students to stay in school and not worry about where their child is throughout the day. This will help the student focus on their schoolwork instead of being stressed because they know their child is in a safe place. The thought of walking into a high school and encountering a daycare full of children is insane. Many questions have been thought of when it comes to high school daycare services but the main one is: “Does this encourage teen pregnancies?” To answer this, yes. High......

The native South Americans he encountered told him about a gold-rich territory called Virú, which was on a river called Pirú (later corrupted to Perú) and from which they came. These reports were related by the Spanish-Inca mestizo writer Garcilaso de la Vega in his famous Comentarios Reales de los Incas (1609).Andagoya eventually established contact with several Native American curacas (chiefs), some of whom he later claimed were sorcerers and witches. Having reached as far as the San Juan River (part of the present boundary between Ecuador and Colombia), Andagoya fell very ill and decided to return. Back in Panama, he spread the news and stories about "Pirú" – a great land to the south rich with gold (the legendary El Dorado).

Uncontacted Peoples of Peru

...Leech Marty Scharman 3/23/2012 Uncontacted Natives of Peru There are many different tribes of people in South America. It is estimated that over one hundred uncontacted tribes exist today around the globe. There are approximately 15 tribes that take residence in Peru. These people have had no contact with the civilized world, and live what we would think is a primitive lifestyle. They have never influenced our way of life in any way. Besides this, many oil and logging companies want to go in to these areas and exploit the natural resources that they hold. This is very dangerous for these types of people, as they have had no contact with anyone from the outside world. These oil and logging companies present a huge threat to people that have never done anything to exploit us. Some people try to deny the fact that these people even exist. The president of Peru was quoted saying that because they are uncontacted people, there is no evidence that they even exist in these rainforest areas. He actually stated that these people were invented by people trying to save the rainforest, and nothing more. This man is obviously being persuaded to let these companies come in and exploit the land for its natural resources. No person would willingly put the lives of others at risk unless it was a for-profit venture. For the president of Peru to portray this message in a news article that would be read by most of the people in Peru is outrageous. Money is once again getting......

Lima has started to attract more tourist which has increased the country's income, so tourism and like hotel management have been considered demanding jobs. Along with college, comes parties and it was interesting to learn that the university students in Lima "party" similar to the students at East Carolina University. At college parties in Lima, students dance, talk with each other, drink, sing, and listen to all kinds of music. Fiorella also told me that there are fraternities and sororities at the university. Family culture and traditions are very important to Peruvians. Peru is a very diverse nation and has many cultures that have been incorporated by European, African and Asian migrants. Even though Lima is very modernized, there are small villages outside Lima that still practice traditions from major pre-Hispanic civilizations and still dress similar to what their ancestors used to dress. Lima is a major city bustling with living history and movement. Lima features pre-Hispanic, colonial, and modern elements. It is also surrounded by every aspect of nature: the sea, islands, mountains, desert, and plant life. It offers an active and modern nightlife and also a well-endowed cultural scene.
