Students receive new Learning Guides
198,000 children in 4,000 rural schools in Antioquia, Colombia, have received our Learning Guides in January 2013.
The Antioquia Education Office has supplied rural municipalities with Fundacion Escuela Nueva’s Learning Guides. This means that approximately 198,000 children in 4,000 schools will be using our guides in this Colombian region. It is a pleasure for us to announce that, after an evaluation process with teachers, the Antioquia Office of Education decided that the materials produced by FEN are the best option for the population.
The guides allow for self-paced learning and encourage a spirit of investigation and autonomy in the classroom. They promote learning to learn, learning to do, learning to communicate, and, most importantly, learning to coexist and work together. They have a comprehensive coverage of core subject areas (language, mathematics, natural sciences, and social sciences). In addition, the guides also cover areas such as technology along with ethics and values. Furthermore, these guides are supported by a set of virtual resources also designed by our team. It is our hope that our Learning Guides offer teachers and students in Antioquia the opportunity to improve results in education while unlocking 21st century skills.
