Using computers and modern technology to help disadvantaged youths have a better chance in life and understand the consequences of anti social behaviour is an idea that can really make a difference.


Getting the funding to take group trips and other such things is beyond the means of most programmes so being able to let people ’see the world’ through the computer screen and get an idea of different cultures as well as seeing places that they can aspire to get to. Seeing areas of natural beauty can also show what antisocial behaviour, littering and pollution might effect.

Being able to see these things and having the opportunity to broaden their horizons can inspire and influence positive change and give these people the opportunity to choose the right paths in life and avoid situations that may present themselves that could ruin their lives. By educating the youth in this manner they can have a positive effect on their peers hopefully creating a knock on effect of better attitudes.

Such sites as this here accessible with an advanced proxy service of some type, help to show that with hard work and the right attitude you can get to places like this and get a good job. It also helps to promote the idea of getting out into the country and living a more active lifestyle which can lead to better long term health for them as well.

Travelling and Exploring Online Can Be Fun

The internet has transformed the way we can explore the planet.  For those who where without the means to jump on airplanes, learning about distant lands was restricted to books and TV.  Although these are obviously a great form of education too, there’s now some amazing options available online in comparison.  Many schools in the UK even supplement their teaching through the resources.  For example the BBC’s educational resources are invaluable particularly the Bite Size site which mirrors much of the UK schools curriculum. Unfortunately much of this is only available in the UK, though you can use a VPN to fool the BBC of your location which works fine in 2021.

There’s another resource which is arguably the most impressive educational resource ever created though – most amazing site – Google Earth

It’s described as the world’s most detailed globe, a bold claim that in truth comes nowhere near to describing this wonderful resource.  Not only can you select, spin and explore the planet from a computer screen – you can in fact almost walk the streets, roads and paths themselves.   Most developed locations, you can even zoom into something called Street view level where you can do a virtual walk around the area.  The picture below is the zoom level above this, but is great for picking specific locations – here’s a random zoom in on Mzilikazi school in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.

Obviously this has the potential to make subjects like Geography and History much more interesting.  You can zoom in and examine the exact places or location all over the planet. Remember it’s entirely free, although you can buy special access and it works fine anywhere without the need for any sort of elite proxy or VPN.

The initial cost for the technology to do this can be affordable by shopping about, getting deals and looking for reconditioned computers so is manageable as a solution for antisocial behaviour and helping disadvantaged youths.
