#AccountabilityThinking redirects funding priorities for the Academy
After the visit by 4 School Principals from South Africa to Sweden and Belgium, Learning Academy Worldwide's priorities for research and implementation have been directed at School Gardens, Teacher Development and Youth Development within Health.
Over the next 6 months the Academy will explore funding support within these three priorities for both research and implementation in the South African context.
The six schools targeted for these initiatives include: Kerria Primary School, Kwavulindlebe School for the Deaf, Siphosethu Primary School, Parkview Primary School, Klipfontein Primary School and Sefako Mapogo Makgatho Primary School.
The aims are to strategically position:
- School gardens as laboratories for study and exploration of innovation.
- Youth researchers as community health data analysts for informed intervention and health monitoring.
- Teachers as agents of change in creating transforming delivery models of pedagogy.
