Tell us about your idea

The project is aimed at enabling senior secondary school students (SS3) have access to education during the pandemic via remote learning. The Pilot Phase will last from 4th May - 29th May 2020 and targeted at Indigent senior secondary school students who are preparing for WAEC.

Currently we have 3 clusters running within the country. We use cluster coordinators to coordinate the students in the clusters. the coordinators use their cell phones to connect to the facilitators (teachers) on the learning platforms(zoom or WhatsApp) for each class. classes run for 4 hours from Monday to Thursday and 2 hours on Fridays. For the pilot, we have engaged only 3 subjects along side the mentorship classes. 

Resources used

1.School teachers of major subject 2.Cluster coordinators 3.Forms for registration/ baseline and end lines 4.Face masks for at least 10 people per cluster 5. WhatsApp application/Zoom when presentations need to be shared 6.Data for internet (coordinators and teachers) 7.Facilitators and teachers should have Internet enabled phone 8.Snacks and drinks.

Outcome 1: Create access to online learning for at least 20 indigent students at pilot stage and 200 after initial pilot (Access)
Outcome 2: Students are able to gain more knowledge in their core subject (Quality)

Outcome 3: Increased knowledge of students in emotional intelligence; improved oracy skills; improved knowledge of civic engagement (Quality)

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

As an organisation, we believe that our country has to go beyond using the black board and chalk method of teaching. This method teaching has made students naive and unequipped with digital tool even after their years of basic education.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.

OpenFees is a non-profit organisation that is aimed at improving access to quality education for indigent students because we believe that every child has the right to go to school no matter the financial condition of his/her parents. We work towards improving education financing in Nigeria through policy influence and collaborative work. Some of the strategies we implore include behavior change communication, fees intervention, collaboration, and mentorship
