About Inovasi

The Innovation for Indonesia’s School Children (INOVASI) Program is a partnership between the governments of Australia and Indonesia. Working directly with Indonesia’s Ministry of Education and Culture, INOVASI is seeking to understand how student learning outcomes in literacy and numeracy can be improved in diverse primary schools and districts across Indonesia. INOVASI is working in a range of locations across Indonesia, and uses a distinctive locally focused approach to develop pilot activities and find out what does and doesn’t work to improve student learning outcomes.
