Meet Crailey Odongo, a class 8 pupil at Bridge Uthiru in Kiambu county. Crailey says Bridge is a really good school that has well equipped teachers who see to it that pupils perform beyond their capabilities.
During the Covid-19 pandemic there was a major crisis in the education sector after schools had to shut down for close to a year. Education institutions had to get creative and Bridge Kenya was not left behind. They provided @home learning guides which were very beneficial to pupils.
According to Crailey, the home learning guides helped them a lot because when schools resumed it was not difficult for them to catch up. “Bridge Kenya sent to all parents quiz tests and other learning guides which were beneficial to me as an individual because it kept me busy and helped me focus on my academic journey.” Says Crailey.
The ‘Transforming Education Summit’ is set to take place during the 77th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), on 16, 17, and 19 September 2022. It aims to mobilize political ambition, action, solidarity, and solutions with a view to transforming education between now and 2030.
One of the key components to be discussed during the summit is recovery from the Covid-19 education disruption and the purpose of digital learning and transformation in achieving this.
Bridge Kenya has been known to use digital learning for the longest period and when Covid-19 hit the education sector, getting pupils to learn using home learning guides and quizzes was one of the major ways that ensured learning continued.
