In 2017, more than 50 million children did not have access to schools or education centers. In response to this, ProFuturo is focused on providing high-quality, digital education to more than ten million children in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
Currently, 5.6 million children between the ages of 5 and 12 are already enjoying ProFuturo’s educational program, a project promoted by The Telefonica Foundation and “La Caixa” Foundation. Their goal is to reduce the educational gap between the richest countries and the poorest regions in the world with high-quality modular and adaptive digital education.
ProFuturo has selected Elesapiens Learning & Fun to develop the content and methodologies related to Science and Social Sciences.
Educating and engaging children in their studies of the sciences through games and experiences is Elesapiens’ specialty. Guided by Geo and Lu, two cartoon characters, children can learn in Spanish, English, French, and Portuguese.
Educating by playing is key to unveiling emotions in children which facilitates their understanding and engagement in the learning process, a prerequisite to obtaining better results.” Antonio Vega, Elesapiens Learning & Fun CEO.
Technology, methodology, and follow up are the best allies
The Science and Social Science content, based on the Elesapiens Science & Fun bilingual program, has been adapted and expanded to allow teachers from different countries to customize their teaching plan and track the performance of every student.
ProFuturo has created autonomous technology packages composed of a server, tablets, routers, batteries, and other devices that take advanced digital education to underprivileged children in regions with limited connectivity or electricity.
Teacher’s manuals created by Elesapiens are also included in ProFuturo’s program. These manuals, along with local teacher training and follow up, promise efficient implementation of the education strategy.
Thanks to this high-quality digital educational model which is both flexible and adaptable to different environments, in 2018 more than 7.7 million children will be able to learn by playing.
