TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM BOOSTS THIS GR. 8 CLASS

After six months out of school, Kenya’s Gr. 8 and Gr. 12 classes returned to school last October. While the other grades remained at home, these students began the challenging preparations for their final national exams. They normally sit those exams in November, but this class of 2020 did their exams in April 2021!

The graduating class of St. Paul’s Primary School returned to find their school digitized! Elimu set up the school as a pilot partner to work with Kolibri, an offline learning platform that facilitates teachers to provide all kinds of useful digital resources for their students. With the initial COVID-19 shutdowns, our Elimu team immediately set about to create a long distance solution to keep kids connected with our digital resources. Elimu’s Offline eLearning Innovation boosts our server out to the community so that students with any wifi-enabled devices such as tablets, laptops or Smartphones can access the educational content and continue their learning.

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

Over three days in April, the Gr. 8 class sat for their national exams. The results came out a month later and Principal, Mary Wamunyu was so pleased to announce the growth in their class average from 59% in 2019 to 66% – with two of their girls leading the way. Click here to watch as Madam Mary describes the impact of Elimu’s offline innovation on her school.
