Tell us about your partnerships
In other to achieve reasonable success in this innovative program, i decided to contact a well established organization in the United Stated of America called Code.org. I decided to contacted them in other to have a standard curriculum and organized pattern of deploying ICT Education and Computing programming to the kids at various schools.
We i contacted code.org they gave me the needed guideline in other to use their resources to educate kids in Africa due to the fact that they only operate in schools in USA and Canada as at the time i contacted them. I believe my partnership with them will get the kids we are about to tutor at Webplanet Consulting and Services to be up-to-date in respect to technology innovation and development.
The programs and resources were design to help the kids from novices to expert with a graphical and multimedia mode of tutoring that will help the kids to grasp the knowledge that is been shared with them.
They promise to give us a full support in respect to the program highlighted by us.
Partnership Name: Code.org
Partnership Type: Resources and Curriculum for Tutoring
Challenges: What challenges might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?
Major Challenge that might affect the program at the start is ACCEPTABILITY by parents, Educators and Students(kids).
The project is designed in a way that, we take the program to each school and try to present the future prospect of the program for both the students and the educators. The tutoring will also take place in their various schools due to the fact that kids pay more attention at there learning environments.
How to Over come:
A letter is been sent to parents about the innovative program brought to their kids schools and the future advantage to be derived from it when there child enroll for the program.
The program with help Educators (Schools) to produce young talented minds among kids that can change the world with Computing.
This program will showcase African kids to the rest of the world with the introduction of quarterly competition for schools as outline in our business plan. This project will also create jobs and employment for kids and youths while in schools, so as to reduce the high rate of poverty and inadequate jobs among youths.
How does your idea help young people create bright futures and improve opportunities for meaningful and long-term careers?
I was able to create this ideas from what i lack while growing up as a kid and a youth. I am an adult now but i want a change and a better future for all, so that all young one will be self reliant and self sufficient from the knowledge they might have acquired while growing up.
From my research i discovered that all profession rely on Computing due to the fact that all business processes are done with Technology, so there is need for all to have that innovative ideas at every stages of life while growing up, it shouldn't be limited a stage in life (High-school or Tertiary Institution).
This idea will help to innovate young hidden talents in kids all around. It will help the growth of entrepreneur among kids and youths. Most especially this idea is to promote team work among kids and youths due to fact that we deduce that majority of youth wants to be master of all and they end up being a master of NONE.
This project is a life time project where benefactors will always want to help the coming generations too.
The Project is Targeted for Both Primary School Pupil and Secondary Schools student:
Reasons Why it Target the Primary School Pupil:
In other to achieve a better Future for the African(Nigerian) Kids, we decided that we need to inculcate this knowledge in them right from a tender age when they can easily absorb new this and this set of groups are majorly at the Primary School level and this serve as a foundation for this young one to build a meaning full and achievable Future on. Thou many can ask if the kids in Primary school would really understand the Concept of the Program? My Answer is Yes! Nigeria(Africa) Kids have a lot of potentials to do amazing things but due to inadequate drive, mentor-ship and resources to achieve this most potentials tends to die off gradually in them. It is time for us to make a change in Africa by investing our time, energy and resources on the young ones. If i could witness a boy of 7 years old emerging has the best programmer in a Country in Asia, i believe African Kids can do better and i want to be part of that change. All the kids needs is mentor-ship at this stage in other to create a strong interesting in Computing Science.
Reasons We Targeted Secondary School Student:
At this Stage of Educational Level, Student at this level tends to be more independent that the primary school kids by having the ability to choose relevant courses of their choice, creating interest in them, make research and decide what they want to achieve in Future careers.
At this level, the program is design in such a way that the student can specialize on an area of interest when it comes to Computing Science i.e (Graphics, Database Design, programming, Analysis, Engineering e.t.c) at their various future careers. The program is not limited to someone studying computing for a future career, it comprises all career professions. It will be like choosing a hobby i.e Making the kids do what they love to do.
Both Targeted Group has a design Universal Curriculum that will help them to achieve every desired milestone in their careers. The Program is designed in a way which will make the Targeted group to be self-independent, self-oriented and masters at what they love doing.
