SATURDAY 31ST OCTOBER 2015 – DAY THREE
The day began much later compared to day two. We begun our sessions at 10.30 a.m. and went right through until 1.30 pm. To cover up for the time we lost as a result of starting late. Our deliberations were quite fruitful and we felt quite pleased with the points we had brought forward.

NEXT STOP: SCHOOL SERIES TOOLKIT VERSION 3.0 

 

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.
