About Program Description
Over 6 months, Discovery Education and War Child worked in partnership to deliver extracurricular lessons to over 5000 students in Grades 7 to 12 who were at risk of dropping out of education across five regions in Lebanon, with a focus on Maths and Science. Over 200 teachers were recruited to deliver these lessons using Discovery Education’s digital learning platform, containing content aligned to the Lebanese curriculum standards, which both teachers and students had unlimited access to for the duration of the project.
The project was carried out over two consecutive cycles, with the objectives to:
- Increase the number of students accessing learning through the digital platform
- Provide an approach that was flexible
- Give access to engaging material that enabled independent learning
- Improve teacher confidence in using digital tools to deliver content
- Improve the academic and learning outcomes of students
