This pilot focuses on issues of educational inclusion for children with learning disabilities. It works to ensure that children with learning difficulties are not only identified, but are participating and learning to their full potential. As a result of the pilot, it is expected that teachers can better identify students who have disabilities that affect learning, and address individual learner needs in the classroom.

Pilot: Early Grade Literacy 2 in Multigrade Teaching

A multi-grade classroom is where a teacher teaches more than one grade at the same time in the same classroom. This approach is essential, especially in remote regions with small populations and in schools that lack teachers or classrooms. Multi-grade teaching is also a way of improving teacher deployment and student-teacher ratios and is useful for teachers who want to differentiate the learning for children with varied competencies.

Kolaborasi Literasi Bermakna is a coalition of four organizations that have a vision to improve the quality of Indonesian children’s education through collaboration and capacity building of stakeholders who play a role  — especially teachers, parents, and government. Kampus Guru Cikal is specialised in training.  Inibudi produces online learning videos, Keluarga Kita designs programs for parental involvement in education as change agents, and Pusat Studi Pendidikan dan Kebijakan works with government to advocate for change informed by research data.

Program focus: Literacy, coalition   

Kolaborasi Literasi Bermakna aims to improve education quality for Indonesian children through collaboration with and improved capacity of all stakeholders in children’s education including teachers, parents and the government. The program will work with 12 schools involving 50 teachers as change agents.This objective is achieved through developing change agents at each stakeholder level, as follows:

  1. Teachers who are ‘ independent to teach’ are key in achieving education change, children’s competence, and the formation of a teacher learning community that is collaborative, leading to a democratic Indonesia.
  2. Parents will promote and push for change in behaviour, influencing other parents to become effective in sharing learning resources and good practices focused on caring and supporting children’s growth.
  3. Governments promote education policy that prioritise change to children, based on research and dissemination of good practices in the Indonesian education ecosystem.

This pilot, commencing in the latter part of 2018, will work to strengthen basic literacy skills and support teachers to improve teaching practice and improve student learning outcomes. Over a number of months and units, teachers will gain a deeper understanding of how to apply basic literacy teaching approaches in the classroom, including reading, comprehension, the use of big books, and assessment. Participating teachers will be able to gain credits to advance their careers and INOVASI will implement the courses in routine, cluster-based, teachers’ working group meetings, using local facilitators, to ensure the courses are affordable and scalable. This pilot finished in July 2019.
