While textbooks are helpful, they constitute a majority of education materials in our schools. In resource-deprived areas, an over-reliance on scant teaching and learning materials like textbooks severely restricts students and teachers development. The pedagogy often emphasizes passing exams. This promotes learning as a means to an end, making learning abstract and time-bound for students. Also, available learning content on traditional media does not encourage student involvement.
To transform curriculum delivery across the continent by creating content that brings engagement and excitement to the classroom, while addressing some of the common challenges teachers and students face. We create high-quality, modern, locally-relevant, supplementary learning and teaching materials which seek to integrate young people into their local communities as problem-solvers and active builders. We encourage a demonstrable acquisition of skills and Lifelong learning.
