CALL TO ACTION
NEXT STOP: SCHOOL SERIES TOOLKIT VERSION 2.0
School Series has begun the process of transforming the Toolkit from its current facilitator-and-students-in-a-room model to an online version. The digital platform we’ll create will incorporate the best practices of digital education and learning initiatives such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and Self Organised Learning Environments (SOLE) to create a group learning atmosphere. This will enable us to create a resource that offers a safe yet fun system to teach life skills to young Kenyans.
We Craft Awesome Programs
At an early age, African children are socialized to be obedient, do well in school, and be seen, not heard. When older, they often lack vital psychosocial skills, such as the ability to communicate assertively, think critically, make decisions and negotiate, solve problems in social relationships, resist pressure, and cope with emotions and conflict. However, these essential skills that majority of school systems have struggled to deliver are the very abilities that are crucial for a student to develop into a happy, healthy, and productive adult.
The School Series© Programme exists to address the above shortcomings of the Kenyan education curriculum i.e. a focus on academics and neglect of students' psychosocial and moral development. We have developed a life skills curriculum known as the School Series Toolkit© that contains sixteen tools that teach students the necessary cognitive, personal and interpersonal life skills that the formal education system neglects to impart. These include but are not limited to: building self-esteem, taking responsibility for themselves, lifelong learning, communication, teamwork, critical thinking, goal setting and time management among others.
