On February 10, 2006, Tiger Woods launched the Tiger Woods Learning Center (www.twlc.org) in Anaheim, California, a new type of learning facility that focuses on helping kids become more interested and proficient in the areas of math, science, technology and language arts. This $25 million dollar facility is open to kids ages k-12 and offers them an opportunity to supplement their mainstream education by letting them have access to teachers and technology so that they can become more proficient in these areas.
This place really is amazing. Several of my colleagues in the Ed Tech unit have visited, and our county superintendent of schools (along with several others from Instructional Services) attended the opening ceremony recently. I look forward to one of my projects taking me there in the future. :)
Here’s a link to the center’s web page.
