Title
Keep Kenya Learning: Helping Caregivers Support Learning at Home Sprint 1.
Abstract
An output of the EdTech Hub, https://edtechhub.org Our research indicates that guidance and resources are necessary but insufficient in equipping caregivers to support their children’s learning. In Sprint 1, caregiver confidence and community emerged as important enablers of home learning. In our interviews, caregivers communicated how they felt limited by their lack of or outdated education. Global interventions indicate that reinforcing a sense of community for caregivers and enabling them to learn from modelling by trusted messengers are pathways to building greater engagement. Caregivers in both rural and urban communities expressed a willingness to engage with SMS (short message service) and online educational resources. However, it is clear that resource design must be: Accessible and understandable Credible and trusted Relevant and actionable.
