Bunong Minority Describtion

Exploration: Bunong minority
Number of students: 12
Duration: 10 Aug-30 Sep
Learning Facilitators: Phearun/ Jaime

Essential Questions:

What are the values and traditions for Bunong minorities?
How have they preserved their cultural traditions sustainably?

Description:
Almost all countries of the world are existing minorities, including Cambodia as well. There are approximately twenty indigenous minorities living in Cambodia, which most of them inhabit the Northeast and East. In this exploring project, we will basically study about Bunong people who is one of the Cambodian indigenous minorities. Students will conduct cultural studies, particularly their culture, belief, lifestyle, interaction, tradition, right, living situation and so on. In this research, students will partly focus on the present issues applying influences over their living conditions. The faith, which is a crucial component, will be proposed to students to explore as it is supposed to be a fascinating topic and different from Khmer majorities. Also, we will find out how they are able to preserve their cultural traditions even it’s currently under the management of government authorities. Increasingly, we will have a field trip to Mondulkiri, where Bunong communities are situated in, to discover directly from them by interviewing and seeing obvious aspects surrounding them. The trip will be collaborated with ICSO, which is closely working with indigenous communities in Cambodia. After seven weeks over the course, students will be able to illustrate their understandings of Bunong people and be aware of current issues they are facing, so they can find some solutions to cope with those. Students will publish a book with photographs, that will be described, they captured as their final product of the exploration to share with government schools in Cambodia, as well as the world. Additionally, they will have practiced with learning outcome skills such as interviewing, presentation, computer development and experienced learning outside the classroom and expertise with photographs.

Teach Support Description

Exploration Name: Tech Support
Learning Facilitator: Max
Exploration Dates: August 13-Oct 3, 2014
Number of Students: 12

Description: Tech Support was the first Exploration of the second year. In Tech Support we learned about technology and helping other organizations, NGOs and Liger with their technology problems. On the first day Max, our facilitator taught us a little bit about the ideas that he made this Exploration. On the next day we started to learn more about technology. We learned about the parts of computers (hardware). On the second week we had a trip to Singapore! Before that day we prepared our clothes in our backpacks. When we arrived at the airport our parents came to say goodbye to us. We were so sad but we were also happy. On the plane people were talking to each other, some people hurt their ears because it’s hard to hear up there in the sky. When we arrived in Singapore we had to wait for the checker to check our passports. After we finished the check step there was a big surprise for us because Robert (the former head of Liger) came and was waiting for us. He came and said hello to us, we were shocked. About 15 minutes later we went straight to UWCSEA South East Campus. We went there because we want to collaborate with them so we can help NGOs and organizations in Cambodia. There were seven members that worked with us. The first day that we met them we played some games to know and get familiar with each other. Then we found out our host family that we were going to sleep with for two days. Our host families were so friendly and kind. We went there and learned with an IT expert more about the hardware of the computers. On the third day we camped in UWCSEA. Also we went to the science museum to learn and have fun. Sadly on Wednesday we had to leave Singapore. When we came back we went to two organizations to help them. One of them is Tiny Toons. They have problems with their computer. We took five computers to fix at Liger. Luckily we fixed two of them already! The other organization is Green Umbrella, and they have a problem with their website so we helped to fix it.
