NomadLab allows us to significantly extend our reach in Southeast Asia and beyond, while empowering vulnerable communities by targeting rural, underserved populations, regardless of their financial status, gender and other prejudicial socioeconomic factors to have access to digital learning content. At the same time, our experience in designing curricula and over 13 years of teaching experience in the region allow us to effectively tackle the persisting problem of low teacher quality. PN uses two main pedagogical components based on its best practices established in Cambodia, Vietnam and the Philippines, supported by an extra tech component.
  1. Teaching for learning: PN identifies the needs of underserved students, creates effective learning objectives and finally designs student-oriented learning materials and exercises. Additionally, PN applies learning concepts and customises the off-the-shelve materials. Also, PN can use its “train the trainer” experience to set up training sessions and prepare participating teachers to foster learning in this digital environment. Finally, PN aims to monitor, evaluate and certify students’ learning paths at different levels, using a variety of methods.
  2. Teaching in the digital age: PN identifies and distinguishes knowledge and information relevant for teaching in our digital age and describes learning opportunities with the help of digital support. At the same time PN selects and uses the relevant digital resources and thereby builds a new and effective learning environment. The content and resource database is to be continually improved and updated.
  3. Extra tech component: A basic maintenance procedure is established and a basic wired/wireless network established. Updates are to be constantly installed and findings as well as best practices can be shared with the NomadLab community.
