Child-Directed, Tech-Enabled Learning Provides an Opportunity For All Children to Learn


What is Child-Directed, Tech-Enabled Learning?

Children drive their own learning, at their own pace, using software that provides a complete, research-based curriculum and pedagogy. Adults play a supportive, facilitative role. The software is delivered to the learner on a tablet, without connectivity, and charged by solar power or other appropriate energy sources.

What makes these solutions unique?

Hardware

Learners use portable tablets that rotate among as many as eight children per day.

Autonomy

Learning is child-centered with students driving their own learning with adaptive content for 30-60-minute sessions per day.

Human Touch

Adults facilitate sessions and support students, but all instruction is delivered via tablet.

Software

Software is a full curriculum and pedagogy is research-based and culturally appropriate.

Flexibility

The solutions work in all settings (in school, in a community setting, or at home), do not require internet connectivity, and can be charged via solar power.

What makes these solutions scalable?

Accessibility

With hundreds of millions of children out of school or lacking access to effective schooling, this model can provide every child, everywhere access to learning. Solutions can work without internet access or grid power. Adults play facilitative, rather than instructional, roles.

Quality

Best-in-class software provides a complete, research-based curriculum that adapts to each child’s pace, progress, and cultural and linguistic context. We work with our partners to continuously improve literacy, numeracy and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) gains.

Affordability

The annual unit cost of the learning solution is less than $10/day per child and declining. This includes hardware, software, accessories, power, shipping, and implementation support from Imagine.
