In a school environment, onecourse is separated into literacy and numeracy strands, divided into levels, Qualified teachers and teaching assistants allocate lessons to classes of children, who have been registered and grouped by age and/or ability.
Children can work through the learning units within each lesson at their own pace, picking up from where they left off. Their progress can be monitored using a low-powered server which is kept locally within each school. This also allows children to login on any device, by touching their photo. This progress can also be monitored in real-time with the teacher’s administrative tool, allowing them to provide instant feedback and support to each child.
onecourse schools version is currently in use under the Unlocking Talent initiative; a joint programme between Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO International) and onebillion. Learn more about our current projects.
Children across the world are already using onecourse in their schools and their teachers are seeing positive results.
Pat, a Grade 5 teacher at Nicols Primary School in South Africa said:
The children have taken to it like fish to water. It’s a super at your level, at your pace kind of programme. The children have had a huge dose of self-esteem, self-confidence, self-worth administered to them. The programme has changed them from the inside out. They’re delighted to learn. They’re enthusiastic, they’re focussed whilst working…It warms my heart as a teacher and repairs my faith in education.
