What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

Education is a universal right

It's enshrined in Article 26 of the UN Charter. The Charter goes on to say that basic education should be compulsory and free. The reality is however, that millions of young people, particularly girls and those displaced by war and conflicts, have no access to that basic right. When you can’t read or write even in your own language, your life chances are bleak. Books aren’t the answer and there will never be enough teachers and classrooms to go round.

So what can we do?

Well, the education technology revolution has started and Klik2learn is  playing a part in that. We’ve already developed unique mobile-first products for English language learners. We're an established business and have 100 hours of Intermediate English learning content online (www.journey2english.com). But many of our students have asked us for a beginners’ English course. We've decided to give them that and more - we'll add numeracy and the missing link some people need most - the basic ability to read and write.

We currently work with:



For Journey 2 Basic Skills, we're partnering with:

 

We’re addressing a huge gap in the educational market.

The Journey 2 Basic Skills course needs to work both online and offline for low-cost mobiles and pre-loaded tablets. Teaching people basic skills through a mobile phone is a massive challenge so this time, we’re not going it alone. We're working with some key players: The World Literacy Foundation and Blupoint in Africa, The Hearth Education Advisors, Unlearn and The Naandi Foundation in India. Our content partners include City College Glasgow. Together we're designing a new future for millions of learners around the world.

Here's what some of our partners have to say:

"We at The Hearth Education Advisors are delighted to partner with Klik2learn for its Digital Basic Skills course. As the course is aimed to benefit beginners including those outside the mainstream educational infrastructure, it will benefit a large number of people affected by illiteracy. The course is intended to improve the employability of people which leads to social inclusion as well as the benefits and stability needed for good health. This Digital Basic Skills course is self-study and could be easily accessible on low cost mobiles and tablets. With this, we see it making a huge difference towards social cohesion in several countries".

"From the outset your project looks very interesting for me and for my organisation, the Naandi Foundation.

We are an organisation serving over 5 million underserved people across 14 states in India under the able chairmanship of Mr. Anand Mahindra, Chairman and Managing Director of Mahindra group. The Naandi Foundation is a professionally run development organization managed by eminent business leaders and trustees. A radical experiment in the development space in India, marrying the unfailing professionalism of the corporate world with the compassionate concern of the social sector, Naandi has been successfully delivering large scale public services in partnership with state government, corporates and international and national development organizations since its inception in 1998.

We ensure learning for primary school children with an emphasis on learning in their mother tongue as well as English – an important 21st century skill, supporting girls to complete school and enhancing their functional English and digital skills - so far about 250,000 girls. We focus on upskilling youth and guaranteeing employment for them - about 100,000 so far". 

 "1. QUESTION: Are there a significant number of pupils with a need for basic literacy, numeracy and English at complete beginner level in Uganda?

ANSWER: YES! Absolutely yes. Like thousands in town!

2. QUESTION: What devices are used to consume digital content? ANSWER: Currently, nothing. We’re planning on piloting the solar panelled tablets but they are not yet in schools.

3. QUESTION: Is there any internet connectivity?

ANSWER: No. Not for children. I only know of a couple of higher-earning private schools with internet access for teachers only. But not with the main schools we are working with". 

"Partnership with Klik2learn The Need for a Digital Basic Skills Course:

Close to six million children in India are out of school. 48% out-of-school children are girls. Whilst the aspiration levels of most children (in and out of school) to learn English language is noticeably high, they may not have access to quality yet affordable digital content inside public sector schools or outside of them. Klik2learn’s Basic Skills digital course, is being curated with the singular aim of making English language learning both fun and accessible, with a graded approach for students (and adults), for whom English is a second or third language. Unlearn is happy to partner with Klik2learn in the co-creation of this pilot, that will enable thousands of learners in India, access to an affordable digital solution on low cost mobiles and tablets. We believe that this much needed product will create long lasting impact in learners and bring about systemic change in several underserved institutions in India and beyond".

Risks and challenges

Klik2learn has a track record of delivering high quality digital learning. Our most recent 'Journey 2 English' course is endorsed by the SQA and used in the UK and overseas to fast-track learners, including refugees, to success in gaining English qualifications.
The secret of our success is understanding how people learn. Learners are at the heart of everything we do and the skills of our design and technical team bring the educational vision to life. Crucially for this project, we're working alongside some key global partners - for content, pedagogy and technical infrastructure. They'll help us pilot the course as we develop it to ensure it meets the needs of their learners and their circumstances. Together we can make something truly life-changing happen.
