This project provides 134 post-primary students with Learning Guides for the following subjects: Language, Mathematics, Natural Science, Social Science, Technology and Ethics. Furthermore teachers will be provided with professional training on how to use the learning material. Keep in mind: One book is not only shared by two students of one year but the material can also be reused in average 7 years! Consequently, with $2,500 this projects will benefit a total of 9380 children in Colombia!
The school is short on learning materials and resources to support and enhance their students' learning process. The learning material will enable 134 students of 6th and 7th grade to continue with their quality education. This school has been excellent in the implementation of the Escuela Nueva model; the children scored higher academic results and improved their democratic and social behavior.
The project enables that the students receive the necessary learning material to keep studying and it also ensures a professional teachers training on the use of the new material. The outcome is promising because of the flawless implementation and the great adaption of the children. The Escuela Nueva model is a social innovation based on active, participatory, and cooperative learning. With a systemic approach, our model impacts the student, the teacher, the community, and the administration.
Poverty, injustice and exclusion can be addressed through education. We see quality education as a tool to protect children, but also as the cornerstone of social and human development. The Escuela Nueva model and pedagogy develops an ethos of peace and participation where children, teachers, and communities are the primary drivers of change. Children learn how to learn and their education is key to improving their lives and that of their families, producing a large-scale social change.
