“All children including disables, refugees and children in a remote area”
Children are at the heart of everything we do. Particularly, those who are most vulnerable, including children with special educational needs, refugees and girls and boys in remote areas. Despite more children attending school than ever, there are still persistent disparities in learning outcomes.
Onebillion support the Sustainable Development Goals and is fully committed to giving all girls and boys the skills they need to unlock their individual talents. Thus, they made a special application called OneCourse. It aims at all children being able to learn to be literate and numerate through a carefully structured course with many different languages. They are all made up of hundreds of engaging activities, games or stories.
Anna is our digital teacher. She guides each child through the course one step at a time, giving instant support and encouragement. She appears on screen herself, or as a pointing hand. For each new activity, she shows ‘how to’ and gives short, simple and clear instructions. Depending on which language she speaks, Anna’s name changes. In Swahili, she is called Mahiraand in Chichewa, Alefa.
The child works through an ordered set of learning units covering reading, writing, and numeracy. Each is a short interactive activity to teach or provide practice for a particular concept or skill.
OneCourse provides each child with an individual journey. Weekly diagnostic tests ensure any gaps in learning are addressed.

OneCourse is educational software for reading and numeracy in the child’s own language.
