Surala Net Co., Ltd. has signed an agreement with the Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI) to implement a pilot project to support secondary mathematics education in Indonesia.
In Indonesia, extended school closures and disrupted re-openings due to COVID-19 have affected around 60 million students and caused significant learning loss.
Surala Net started to provide digital learning program ‘Surala Ninja!’ for schools in Indonesia in 2015. The program can be used both at schools and homes. After the pandemic broke out in 2020, a substantial number of children and families started to use the program for home learning purposes. The program focuses on the four basic operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division – broadly covering Grade 1 to 6 curricula. The content has been recently expanded to include fractions, measurements, and other areas of arithmetic to cover for grade 7. The localization has been conducted in collaboration with Indonesian education experts to make the contents suitable for students in Indonesia.
The new project with ADB will focus on understanding of effective ways of narrowing learning gaps among students by delivering computer-based adaptive teaching and learning. The project will include teacher capacity development to enable teachers to use and benefit from the digital program.
