New Tools

Schools2030 will deploy three new resources for the programme:


Schools2030 will leverage its existing partnership with and Vera Solutions in rolling out a new, offline, mobile learning assessment app called PROMISE3 (Programme Management Information System for Education by Everyone, Everywhere) that enables local ECD and education stakeholders to better collect, analyze, and act on new learning assessment data that will seek to:

  • Improve local classroom teaching/learning assessment at scale and
  • Enable each school to participate in the global evidence-generating program by ensuring data anonymity and security at scale.

Holistic Quality Learning Assessments

Schools2030 will leverage its local and global networks of holistic quality learning assessment experts in ECD and Education to co-develop and co-contextualize teacher-led learning assessments that can be used at the classroom and school levels throughout the programme. The goal is to better understand the practical impact of measuring, analyzing and acting on new data from a teachers’ perspective in advancing social and emotional learning, 21st century skills, and subject knowledge mastery.

Design Thinking for Schools

Schools2030 will leverage its partnership with former lecturers from the Stanford University d-School in rolling out a new, school-level design thinking toolkit that will enable preschool, primary school and secondary school stakeholders to co-identify their challenges, develop new solutions, apply for funding, and implement classroom-level strategies to improve quality learning for all.


Schools2030 will launch at the beginning of the academic calendars in each country throughout 2020; with countries grouped into three groups for a phased approach


Group 1 – Brazil, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania

Group 2 – India, Pakistan, Afghanistan

Group 3 – Portugal, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan

Each of the Schools2030 country-level programmes will be implemented in consultation with a Schools2030 National Advisory Committee that will include stakeholders from across the educational and early child development ecosystem that will help guide and align the programme to national priorities in research, policy and practice.
