Dear Educators & Partners!
Happy New Month!
We hope you are keeping safe during this pandemic and following the guidelines put in place to keep all of us safe. We can only hope everything returns to normal soon.
Although COVID-19 put a halt to physical activities, that didn’t deter us at Meadow Hall foundation. We believe education is a lifelong process, every opportunity to learn should be seized.
Through our All About Teachers Facebook platform, professional development trainings and mentoring opportunities to equip teachers, with the latest evidence-based strategies in education, were held. Whatsapp webinars were also held on the All About Teachers Whatsapp platform, these sessions were highly interactive and engaging.
Taking to thought our new reality and the advancement of technology and its capabilities, our first webinar on the Facebook platform during the lockdown was on the The Future Of Learning: Facilitating E-Learning, facilitated by Nkechi Fakoya, Director of Studies (Infant School) Meadow Hall Education. On the 30th of April, 2020, she taught how to make the switch to online learning, how to set up a virtual classroom and many more. You can watch the webinar here.
The second webinar was facilitated by Olalekan Adeeko, Founder of TedPrime and Inspirational Educator Awards (INSEA) Ambassador 2018, on Adapting to Maximise Technology (High & Low Tech Solutions) for E-Learning. As a follow up to the previous webinar, Mr. Adeeko showcased ways to get the best out of various technological tools for e-learning. You can listen to the webinar here.
The third webinar was facilitated by Toluse Francis on the 15th of May, 2020, and titled Mind + Tech: Finding a Balance. The purpose of this webinar was to expatiate on the impact of technology on our mental health. You can access this here.
We have an upcoming webinar titled, COVID-19 & the Naira: The financial implications of the pandemic on private schools, to be facilitated by Mr. Michael Famoroti, Chief Economist of Stears Nigeria, scheduled to hold on the 11th of June, 2020. To listen in click the link here.
The webinars on our Whatsapp platform are a daily occurrence filled with intellectual discussions as they range from Teachers and Financial Freedom to Post Covid-19 School Assessment: Implication for Schools, School owners, Teachers & QA Evaluators.
These webinars are to encourage teachers that all hope isn’t lost during the pandemic, and despite data limitations and other constraints such as technological solutions, learning never stops.
Before the lockdown in Lagos State, we had been working on the renovation of the nursery classrooms at Ilasan Nursery and Primary School in partnership with Little Drops Funds. The plan was to redo the roof, ceilings, tile the floors, repaint the classrooms, redo the doors & windows and purchase toys and equipment for the classrooms. The purpose was to give the little ones a safe space for their education. You can find some pictures of the ongoing project here.
Thank you for your commitment to ensuring that the Nigerian Child have access to quality education.
