Abstract

ARTS to the Delta, a 1+ million dollar project, is an advanced-technology infrastructure program for the region of northeast Louisiana which provides a gateway for education, skills training, and enrichment for Louisiana delta-area students. The primary goal is to provide -- through distance learning via video conferencing technologies- life-long-skills for rural 1st-5th grade participants. The project provides -- 1) educational opportunities to increase student academic performance and retention; 2) skills enhancement to encourage entrepreneurship and life-long learning among economically-distressed delta residents; and 3) intercommunication opportunities so that delta residents can experience "virtually" beyond their present condition. The grant brings the delta into the world by bringing the world to the delta.
