College students at East Arkansas Community College have a unique opportunity to experience cutting-edge technology in their traditional classes.
EACC’s EAST Initiative is based upon an educational model that engages students in relevant teamwork in the production of unique projects using many new kinds of software and technology.
The students develop projects related to their classes using software programs such as hi-tech animation, virtual-reality programs or digitized musical compositions.
The EAST Initiative is an educational non-profit that works with schools and colleges across the country to implement local EAST programs. It has been named a model program by the United States Department of Education and the United States Department of Labor.
At the core of the EAST Initiative all students are required to work in teams that tackle self-selected community service projects.
