A New Way To Learn

A New Way To Learn

Summary

One of the greatest promises of technology in underserved schools is the access it brings to different and more robust learning opportunities. Technology Partnership is partnering with Lumen Labs to deliver a project-based curriculum to students. The new curriculum teaches digital literacy skills along with critical thinking, writing and research skills. This curriculum was developed in Kenya, for Kenyans. It fills major gaps in learning and creates a more interesting path to digital literacy.

Challenge

Schools in Kenya are working with the bare minimum of supplies and high student to teacher ratios. Classes are held six days a week, dawn until dusk. Teachers and students work relentlessly. In these crowded classrooms, with tired, underfed students, it is nearly impossible to teach more than rote memorization and push through the mandatory curriculum. Learning should never be this tedious.

Solution

We have a new tool that will change the way students learn. A curriculum is available to develop digital literacy through Project Based Learning. This curriculum, developed by Lumen Labs was designed in Kenya, for Kenyans. Students are challenged to learn digital skills but to also develop their critical thinking and communication abilities.

Long-Term Impact

Once we purchase this curriculum, we can use it in any school, children's home, women's entrepreneurial center, etc that we partner with. This gives us the ability to improve learning and educational outcomes for every student we have the honor to work with.
