Teachers at two primary schools – Tugol uulu Usupbek School in Naryn and Ziyamidin Karimbekov School in Chon Alay – have worked in design teams within their schools to come up with creative practices to engage their students for improving mathematics and literacy. The Young Architects Club, and the The Future Learning Centre are the result of their Human-Centred Design processes. As with so many of the Schools2030 innovations, the child-centred, engaging and practical approach of these ideas has also resulted in improving a wide variety of disciplines, including digital literacy and ICT skills, creativity, collaboration, self-efficacy and more. Watch the below videos to learn more from the teachers and students themselves!
