A collection of projects and impact programs
English Immersion (SEI) Summer Academy
Ed4.0 developed an intervention summer academy program. The summer academy aimed to close the academic achievement gaps in numeracy, and literacy standards for 500+ primary aged children in low SES areas and turn-around schools. 80% of the students made a year’s worth growth in the standards where gaps existed, preparing them for the next academic year.
Fourth Industrial Revolution Accelerated Youth Program
Ed4.0 created a framework for an initiative that introduces the concepts of the fourth industrial revolution to secondary and higher education youth. The framework consisted of elaborating personalized student profiles that served as a basis for the selection of workshops and curricula assigned. At the end of the program, each student graduated with an implementable and agile 4IR career plan.
Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship Accelerator Program
We worked with the K-12 students to develop a yearlong financial literacy and entrepreneurship program. The program was integrated with the CEE Financial Literacy Standards and consisted of a series of workshops where students developed individual business plans. Students made growth in foundational literacy standards and learned entrepreneurship concepts (e.g. Lean Startup). Select students received funding to pursue their ventures.
21st Century Edtech Platform & Professional Development Initiative
Ed4.0 worked with educators and youth to integrate edtech in everyday classroom instruction over a period of 6 months. The initiative focused on training teachers on differentiated learning, Bloom’s Taxonomy, Backward Design, and edtech integration to create learning programs for the benefit of K-12 students. Teachers made a 4o point average growth on their Digital Skills Assessment (DSA) and students made a year of growth over specific numeracy and literacy standards.
Alignment of National Education Strategy with Labor Market Trends
Ed4.0 conducted a Labor Market Analysis in order to forecast the labor market in 2025 and aligned the National Education Strategy with the findings. A macroeconomic model was built to determine the total labor force across several sectors until 2025 by occupation, gender and nationality. We created labor market projections for the period 2016-2025 and derived four recommendations that are specifically addressing issues around skills and training within the National Education Strategy.
AI Predictive Engine for Education Quality and School Performance
We supported the ministry in the creation of an AI engine that enables K-12 school quality and learning outcome prediction and created a dashboard that informs decision making across students, parents, educators and policy makers. We benchmarked and synthesized over 500 factors of quality education that served as inputs for the dashboard and the two independent machine-learning components of the AI Engine. Both prototypes have been deployed and have already provided strong insights for the execution of education policies.
