We’ve developed the Seenaryo Playkit, a mobile phone app and training for teachers of 3 – 8 year olds, supporting them to deliver their curriculum through music, story and play. The app contains how-to videos, music tracks and flashcards, and is usually accompanied by a 3-day training. The Playkit has so far been delivered to over 140 schools and NGOs including the International Rescue Committee, Caritas, and War Child, in turn transforming classrooms for over 25,000 children. The Seenaryo Playkit is supported by Expo Live.
I had a child in my class who constantly hid under a table. When he saw us playing Jump or Touch he came out and wanted to participate. Since then he’s been joining in with everything.
I Learn From Home
I Learn From Home allows caregivers of 3 – 6 year olds to implement play-based learning at home. At the start of the pandemic, we turned our Playkit activities into easy lesson plans. These plans and videos have been sent out to over 5,500 families during the course of Covid-19.
I Learn From Home was commissioned by Back to the Future and is supported by Expo Live. Back to the Future project is funded by the European Union in Lebanon and implemented in partnership by AVSI, War Child Holland in Lebanon and Terre des hommes Italy in Lebanon.
What’s noticeable is the enthusiasm of the parents, who’ve taken on the role of teacher at home – and in particular we’ve seen many of the men at home leading the learning.
Video Making is a training and guide we’ve developed for teachers who are creating video content for their students during distance learning. It supports teachers to make their own video content clear, interactive and playful.
The response level of my children is so much higher now: 95% or more every lesson.
