‘Making learning a rewarding experience’
Let’s think of a child who lives in an underprivileged environment. It’s near impossible to give this child a quality education today without a complete infrastructure upgrade. If we were to wait for the local government to build a good school, recruit and train good teachers, it may take a good 10 to 20 years.
Without access to education, as shocks are experienced – including loss of life, health impacts and loss of livelihoods – children are more vulnerable and unprotected. As household finances are being strained and needs increase, out-of-school children are more likely to be exposed to risks like family violence, child labor, forced marriage, trafficking and exploitation, including by responders. For the most vulnerable children, education is lifesaving. Not only does it provide safety and protection, importantly, it also instils hope for a brighter future.
So continuing education through alternative learning pathways, as soon as possible, must also be a top priority right now, to ensure the interruption to education is as limited as possible. We urgently need to support teachers, parents/caregivers, innovators, communications experts and all those who are positioned to provide education, whether through radio programmes, home-schooling, online learning and other innovative approaches.
The tradition of having classroom teachers to impart knowledge to our children has been around for thousands of years. We believe this mode of education is being challenged in the digital era. The four walls of schools are “melting” fast. Learner communities around the world have become more connected than ever before.
With the help of new data-driven and behavior-shaping technologies, we believe not only we can deliver quality content to the masses in a more efficient and personalized way; we can now use technology to empower a child to self-learn, self-assess and master critical knowledge even with minimal adult supervision.
Our long-term vision is to transform education perception. We want our students to perceive learning as fun and interesting and it can take place virtually from anywhere at any time, with the best quality content from the best educators around the world.
