Pedagogy of the Future Today

ALfA, or Accelerating Learning for All, revolutionizes education with a child-led focus on foundational literacy and numeracy. Given the stark fact that 2 out of 3 children under ten lack basic skills, ALfA seeks to correct educational failures. This innovative pedagogy ensures rapid literacy and numeracy acquisition in just 45 days, prioritizing effectiveness, joy, and well-being.

Going beyond conventional learning, ALfA strives to offer holistic education for every child. Envisioning a collaborative and conflict-free future, ALfA equips children with skills to shape a climate conscious peaceful world free from poverty—a crucial approach for a brighter global reality.

ALfA 4C SKILLS + 4C TRAITS

ALfA seamlessly integrates the 4C Skills leading to 4C Traits of a twenty-first century learner. These 8Cs cannot be taught from a textbook, but rather acquired while working with each other in the everyday context of a classroom. Pair setting creates a safe environment in which learners feel free to share and express.
