Scientia

About Solution

An efficient solution to guarantee academic success, Scientia is a platform which allows each stakeholder of education to have in real time all the information, the support and the content they need to work effectively and thus guarantee the school success of each student.


The context in which the project is operating:

In its report titled "Report on growth and employment in the Gabonese Republic - Creating the conditions for inclusive growth" published in 2013, the World Bank states that the school failure rate in Gabon is in the order of 37 %. Which is 2 times higher than the African average and this represents the worst rate in the world.

The 2 main causes are the large deficiencies in the school monitoring of students and the low budgets allocated by the State in this sector.

Needs:

  • A high school failure rate
  • No multi-year student tracking data outside grade and school records (which is not very up-to-date and is only effective for exam classes)
  • No data for daily monitoring of schooling by parents; they are therefore put on the fait accompli at the end of the quarter at the reception of the report card.
  • No multi-year administrative management and administration tool for school administrations to manage administrative and educational staff, classrooms, timetables, students, etc.


The problem we are addressing:

The problems that Scientia is addressing are the very high rate of academic failure in Gabon and Africa and the poor quality of educational content in Africa which is no longer in line with their needs of today and tomorrow.


Our solutions:

An efficient solution to guarantee academic success, Scientia is an easy-to-use platform accessible from your computer, tablet and/or smartphone connected to the Internet.

Scientia allows each actor of education (student, parent, teacher, administrative body of institutions and even the Ministry of Education) to have in real time all the information he needs to work effectively and thus guarantee the school success.

The platform is designed to monitor and evaluate the quality of the courses taught and the degree of assimilation of students. It also helps to identify and reveal potential student gaps, as well as to identify teachers' level of competence and ability to pass on knowledge.

The platform is also designed to bring parents back to the heart of their children's education by allowing them to follow the evolution and content of classes. They are automatically alerted by SMS alerts on absences, scheduled evaluations, homework, grades obtained.


Our Innovations:

  • We built a web platform to allow every stakeholder in the school life to have all the information they need to be able to work efficiently to ensure the success of each student.
  • We provide training and support to teachers to improve the quality of their content with Future-Ready Skills for students through affordable technologies like smartphones.
  • With SMS notifications and complete access to all the information about their child's school life, we bring each parent back to the heart of their children's education for better monitoring.


How is impact assessed and progress monitored?

  • All the grades are recorded in our platform so we can monitor the evolution of each student.
  • We can monitor in real time if parents and educational staff are connected and we can know what is their frequency of use.
  • We can monitor in real time if teachers use the tools that we provide for improving the quality of their course.
  • We can monitor the pedagogy and the quality and the compliance of the courses given by the teachers through the grades of students.



How the project has transformed an aspect of education and the effect this is having on beneficiaries and the community or society at large? 

  • The administration of the school receives on a single platform, management and monitoring of enrollments, assessments, grades, students, teachers, administrative staff, classrooms, schedules, management financial, etc.
  • Teachers have, from their smartphone, access to multi-year monitoring of students, course monitoring, tracking notes, monitoring assessments, monitoring of classrooms, monitoring schedules, etc.
  • Parents can monitor the progress and content of their children's classes daily. They are automatically alerted by SMS alerts on absences, scheduled evaluations, homework, grades obtained.
  • They are informed about their child's schedule and have the opportunity to contact the administration at any time.
