Digital Learning For 1000 Public School Students

Summary

This project will bridge gaps in educational enrichment for vulnerable students by providing data for digital learning access, and delivering educational and skills-building programs via digital platforms for up to 1000 secondary school-aged students. Programming will equip participating pupils with information, skills, and resources to support and sustain learning and development, and provide motivation to persist through COVID-19 related school closures in Nigeria.

Challenge

Due to the COVID-19 school closures, there has been a disruption in the education of over 600,000 pupils enrolled in Lagos State public schools.Many of these pupils come from families on the lower rung of the economic ladder, with very limited resources to cushion the economic shocks of the Covid-19 pandemic, and with little or no preparedness for participation in digital learning. Long periods of absence from school can lead to learning loss, learning demotivation and increased vice engagement.

Solution

This project aims to provide up to 1000 students with data to participate in carefully selected educational and skills development programs that will be delivered via WhatsApp platforms and Zoom meetings. Programming will include daily moderated book clubs and weekly webinars that will deliver modules on academic, soft and digital skills. The webinars will also furnish students with online resources for self-paced learning and development. Programming will be delivered for up to 13 weeks.

Long-Term Impact

By resourcing and re-engaging up to 1000 youths in learning for a sustained period this program would be minimizing the learning gaps for participating vulnerable students and mitigating negative effects like higher dropout rates, child pregnancy, early marriage, life-long financial dependency and fall-backs in work and life preparedness that long periods out of school can cause.
