The Foundation has an exciting value network of partners all working to eliminate barriers that prevent children from learning.
70 percent of children worldwide are facing learning poverty. They are reaching the age of 10 without being able to read simple sentences, complete basic math, establish strong learner identities, or build social relationships.
You have heard of athletes getting into the “zone.” Learning is just like that. There is a zone where children can experience “learning flow.” Lev Vygotsky, the Russian child psychologist, called it the Zone of Proximal Development. It is that remarkable space where learning is neither too difficult nor too easy. It is just right to help children build a true love of learning and acquire the tools and skills they need for mastery.
Benjamin Bloom, the American education psychologist, discovered that children who receive one-to-one mastery learning perform much better than peers in conventional classrooms. Bloom therefore challenged the world to identify methods of group instruction that could be as effective as one-to-one tutoring. The Age of Learning Foundation is answering Bloom’s call in our partner countries.
