TedTalk: Re-Imagining Education in Haiti – Steve Sider
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Fa9JSaVQus
How common cellphones are
-nearly 50% of Hatian population has cellphones, even though it is poorest country in Western
hemisphere
-created Digital Mentoring Project connecting principals from Haiti to Waterloo to talk
-ex learning how to use Excel spreadsheets, teaching about challenges of budgeting in Haiti
Piti piti te pi pi zwazo fe nich = little by little, straw by straw, the bird builds it's nest
Assumptions that were made:
-that the needs of students/teachers in Haiti are the same as those in Ontario
-the importance of integrity and honesty is different in a different context that has more crime
-'stoplights' – trying to help but really adding impediments
What comes to mind when you think of the educational divide?
-some students having access to phones/technology while others don't
-how money shapes the educational tools children have access to as babies, which later impacts their
development/ability to perform in schools
-the area you live in; are you close to good schools? If there is no bus, maybe you have to wake up
extra early to get there
-funding; some schools maybe can't afford arts programs or clubs
-quality of teachers and of school facility
-government infrastructure to support education
-ability to attend elementary, secondary and higher education

Case Example: Malala Yousafzai
-youngest person (17) in history to win Nobel Peace Prize
-spoke out for rights of girls in Swat Valley, Pakistan to receive an education
-girls had been banned from going to school in many communities by the Taliban, who believe women
should not be educated
-Taliban threatened her and her family, and they shot her in 2012, she barely survived and received
medical care in England
-she continued to advocate for girls' rights to attend school after this, and has campaigned for the rights
of all children (particularly girls) to attend school
“Education is neither Eastern nor Western, it is human”
What do you see as some of the most important things Malala is trying to do to support the ability of
girls to attend school?
Malala's fund supports Ramatullah Arman's work, which seeks to recruit and train female teachers.
Having female teachers there to inspire, understand, and educate young girls is essential in establishing
an environment fit for learning that motivates girls to go to school and to pursue further education.
Furthermore, it is only with research that we can understand a phenomenon and work to change/prevent
it on a grander scale. By funding Zarqa Yaftali's work, Malala helps to understand why girls don't
attend school and thus how their access to education can be improved.
What do you see as two key challenges in supporting the ability of girls to attend school?
