East Africa says “yes” to Digital Education

The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development approves Avallain powered digital learning

Learning in Kenyan schools is changing. Increasingly, students spend time in computer labs responding to questions in video or audio format, completing interactive tests, and solving crossword puzzles. This educational technology feels high-touch rather than remote – students smile after successfully memorizing concepts, listen with full attention to their teacher, or immerse themselves in educational videos.

Instilling this sense of communal learning is a-ACADEMY, an interactive digital learning tool built with the Avallain Author and officially approved by the Kenyan Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).

a-ACADEMY’s digital lesson plan aligns with the Kenyan curriculum, features an intuitive and child-friendly user interface and integrates teacher guidelines. While the lesson plans are highly interactive, a-ACADEMY’s offline functionality allows its use even with very limited infrastructure.

a-ACADEMY succeeds in meeting local education needs while adhering to high international standards, according to Kenyan officials who reviewed the curriculum and issued official approval for the “Supplementary Digital Curriculum Support Material.”

“All doors are now open to establish digital education not only in Kenya but in all of East Africa,” said Martina Amoth, a-ACADEMY’s Education Manager.
