Reaching children at scale with autonomous learning requires solutions that can easily adapt to the ever-changing variety of contexts in which we operate. Our approach centers on identifying and testing the implementation and operational components that support the use of personalized game-based learning software and localized content for a variety of needs and contexts.
Pop-Up Learning Bangladesh
Home-based learning for out-of-school children fleeing violence
We completed the Pop-Up Learning Bangladesh pilot in April 2020. Next we plan to further optimize the delivery model, reduce costs and test the impact and cost-effectiveness of Pop-Up Learning Bangladesh as a supplemental education program for children transitioning to formal school.
Pop-Up Learning Tanzania
Home-based learning for last-mile learners affected by COVID-19
In January 2021 we launched the Pop-up Learning Tanzania pilot to test a completely remote version of the Pop-Up program with 1,000 households and 3,000 learners in Tanzania host communities. We aim to learn how to optimize uptake and usage for children learning at home during a completely remote, caregiver-led program designed for crises such as COVID-19 school closures or insecurity when it is not possible to meet with a target population face-to-face. We will also learn about the cost-efficiency of this model.
Pop-Up Class Tanzania
Supplemental after-school learning for children performing below their development potential
In September 2020 we launched the Pop-Up Class Tanzania pilot to test a supplemental after-school learning program for Congolese refugee children in the Nyarugusu Refugee Camp and learners in Tanzania host communities. We aim to understand if the learning impact achieved by similar programs conducted in school and in stable contexts can be achieved in crisis contexts when the language of instruction is not the child’s first language, caregivers and other adults facilitate learning sessions instead of trained teachers, and when learning sessions take place outside of the regular school day in homes or in centers. We will also learn about the cost-efficiency and cost-effectiveness of this model.
