We work with various companies, organisations, and individuals as we pilot projects that can positively impact the current education crisis at scale.
If you have an interest in pioneering with us, please have a look at the following ways that you can partner with us:
Customise Your Course in a Box
Do you have the vision to customise some content for your students or audience? Due to the ease of adding new content and apps to the tablets, we help various organisations to customise content within our School in a Box. Adult education, surveys or focussed training can be created and used for your company or school. The costs for adding new content is minimal.
After School Centres
NGOs, orphanages, churches, sports bodies and schools use the School in a Box to offer academic support after school. One of our bigger after-school projects also involves tutors who manage the environment, while many organisations have staff who run sessions. Most centres do not charge learners, but some have additional offerings and charge enough to cover the salaries of their facilitators.
Low Fee Schools
To reduce costs, some schools have a facilitator operate the School in a Box using lessons pre-queued by a teacher, often using a flipped classroom methodology.
Other schools utilise the Box during class time in a blended learning approach to improve teacher effectiveness in large classes. With the help of the School in a Box, teachers can divide the class into smaller groups with one group on tablets, one doing an exercise and one discussing the content.
Multigrade schools have among the worst academic performances nationwide. It is understanding as teaching multiple grades can be daunting. Using School in a Box allows learners in one grade to work on their own, while others can enjoy time with the teacher.
Coding is a helpful 21st-century skill, but it is not included in most syllabuses. We use a fully offline School in a Box system to give learners in rural and semi-urban communities the opportunity to learn how to code, culminating in assessments and even hackathons.
We believe that in the medium to long term it may be possible to operate small, boutique schools using a School in a Box. We have many staff and partners developing and trialling this concept in South Africa and beyond.
Additional Learning Tool or Homeschooling
The vast range of academic content, assessments and resources, and the simplicity of usage, allows the School in a Box to be used as an excellent tool for homeschoolers. Students progress at their own pace through the levels. This is perfect for children who need "extra lessons" and would be more comfortable to do them at home. Lessons and exercises can be tracked for progress and reports so that parents can monitor how their child is doing.
