Modernização Pedagógica do Curso Preparatório para Vestibular e ENEM

Access to higher education for youths and adults in Campo Grande, MS

The city of Campo Grande in the “midwest” region of Brazil has a high level of inequality, which is reflected in the low levels of education of the most vulnerable populations, especially as it applies to students of African and indigenous descent. Instituto Luther King offers prep courses to 140 students per year, and also has a fund that offers scholarships to low-income, first generation college students.

The project supported by BrazilFoundation will train teachers in multimedia and classroom technology, which will, with the use of new didactic materials, create a modern pedagogical system to encourage learning. 20% of course spots will be reserved for students between 30 and 60 years old.

With support from BrazilFoundation, the Instituto will:

• Hold teacher training workshops in technology practices for the classroom;
• Format didactic material for digital media;
• Prepare all students for the ENEM (the national high school evaluation program);
• Improve the quality of education so that 90% of enrolled students pass the university entrance exams.

IMPACT

• 100% of students ready for ENEM
• 715 students pass college entrance exam
• Train professors in use of technology
