Academic Bridge Project - Technology enabled home-schooling pilot project in First Assalam School


This program aims to build functional skills in reading, writing and numeracy in both Arabic and English for out of school youth in Qatar who are 15 to 19 years. The design of this program is based on the idea of relying more on self-study within peer groups using digital learning resources accessed through tablets (80%), versus attending a classroom with a teacher once a week (20%). This program can be considered as an academic bridge that qualifies young people to complete their basic or vocational education, in order to become productive and active individuals capable of making a positive change in their community. To achieve this goal, the program will focus on:

1. Developing functional skills in reading, writing and numeracy, and preparing learners after completing this program (for two years) to join a vocational education program or to continue their formal education (if possible).

2. Helping learners to enhance their 21st century skills and life skills to be more ready to participate as active members of the society.

3. Conduct monitoring and evaluation for this pilot program to develop an effective blended learning model.

Currently, after obtaining the approval of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, the program is in the design and content development phase, and its activities can be summarized as:

A.    Designing the syllabus for the  first pilot term of the project along with placement assessment tests

B.    Building the mobile application with curated OER self-learning content for the pilot term

C.   Recruiting and training the project manager to co-plan for the implementation of the project

D.   Hire the external Monitoring and Evaluation expert to validate and improve the existing framework
