We seek to work in ways which support local capacity building in the countries in which we work. We aspire to help generations of educators and trainers develop the skills to use Education Technologies to increase access to high quality education and training.
Through our partnership with Save the Children, we co-design programs which train teachers, lecturers and education volunteers to prepare and design eLearning courses and then we mentor them to successfully facilitate them establish a local technical support, training and eLearning consulting capability.
Some of our projects:
This program launched in early 2019 in the Western Province of Papua New Guinea to provide fifteen thousand children, parents and teachers with access to thousands of digital learning activities from Age of Learning through apps such as ReadingIQ, ABCmouse, and Mastering Math.
The program aimed to provide curriculum support and teacher training. Mapped to national curriculum standards, the activities include provision for some custom, localised educational content. The initial roll out includes 15,000 mobile tablets with online and offline learning opportunities.
Western Province, Papua New Guinea
To provide support to teachers and the school system by developing e-Learning hubs in schools across the western province of Papua New Guinea to improve literacy and numeracy skills among 3rd through 6th grade students and their families.
The project design included working with a Telco partner to provision free internet access, digital devices, and solar chargers to schools. This allowed us develop a project concept which actively reduced the Digital Divide experienced by students and to provide schools with the opportunity to develop digital literacies as well as benefit from world class digital curriculum. The project was delivered in partnership with the PNG Sustainable Development Program, Digicel, Save the Children Australia and PNG, Inclusiv Education and Age of Learning and their "Bring Learning to All" program.
