A Study of Education, Out-migration of Young Adults and the Impact of Information and Communications Technologies on the Economies of Rural Communities in Newfoundland and Labrador
This research project explores a number of issues relating to education and the well being of rural communities. It explores the issue of outmigration of young adults and provides valuable information on education changes due to Information Technology in rural areas as well as the effect of TeleLearning on student migration and community development.
It focused on four schools in the Avalon West School District and examined the impacts of TeleLearning in these schools. The recommendations produced have province wide implications as well as the potential for application in other provinces.
