Jochen Robes über Bildung, Lernen und Trends

A new wave of educational efforts across Africa exploring the use of ICTs

trucano_201304b.jpgDer Autor fasst hier verschiedene Entwicklungen und Aktivitäten zusammen, deren Fäden bei der Weltbank und 2iE, einem internationalen Non-Profit-Trainingsinstitut, zusammenlaufen. Dabei geht es vor allem um die Frage, wie Bildung unter den gegebenen technischen und ökonomischen Rahmenbedingungen organisiert werden kann. Das folgende „pay-as-you-go“-Modell, auch „taxi model“ genannt, ist vielleicht auch für ganz andere Zusammenhänge interessant:

„A low-cost, pay-as-you-go model is at the heart of many of the innovative business models 2iE is pursuing. By breaking payments into small pieces, and not requiring that (for example) a student pay an entire semester’s tuition. Such schemes are much easier to self-finance than many tradition approaches — especially important where sources of student aid can be rare. As relevant to their needs and as their finances allow, students can proceed one course, and one certificate, at a time, with the possibility to aggregate these courses and certificates into full-fledged degrees over time, at a pace that suits them. „An African solution for the Africa economy“ is how 2iE describes this approach, which is labels the taxi model (‚taxi-brousse‘):
– you start when the car is full;
– you drive for as long as you need — and can afford;
– if you don’t like the ride, you can get out and find another taxi.“
