What is FUNecole®

FUNecole®, a solution created by Digipro Education Ltd, is a comprehensive learning platform for primary and elementary grade students to teach important social-emotional skills for living in the 21st century. Digital learning concepts and tools are employed to teach these concepts throughout the six year-long sequences of lessons, beginning with Year One and building the scope and sequence through Year Six. Furthermore, the lessons scaffold the use of Computer Science and ICT skills embedded into activities that are anchored in real-world contexts and situations.

How is it implemented?

The FUNecole® program is designed to be teacher managed and delivered as whole-class lessons. Lesson plans include prompts for discussion, collaboration, and offline activities to introduce social-emotional concepts and ideas using collaborative strategies and gaming. Lesson activities provide pre and post assessments on the social-emotional concepts introduced in the activities.

Students use a variety of software programs to create presentations of new learning. The activities are designed to provide students with opportunities to apply their software/computing knowledge in their demonstrations of learning. The teacher’s design platform provides software specific tutorials if students need additional practice or help when using the technology tools.

Teachers are provided with an easy to navigate interface to organize and assign activities for the students. Included in each of the activities contained in the lesson are recommended technology tools from which the teacher may select to complement student computing skills and practice. This unique sequence of lesson plans is customizable by teachers to meet the needs of their classroom and technology skills of the students.

The strategies and tools presented, from which teachers may select, are platform agnostic thereby creating a curriculum that can be used by any teacher with any available applications. Many of the activities include optional extension activities that allow a teacher to expand the lesson theme to an even deeper level.

FUNecole® has the ISTE Seal of Alignment for ISTE Standards for Students at the Proficiency level. It is evaluated as a Best Practice by European Commission’s Joint Research Institute (JRC), and is Endorsed by Cambridge International Examinations for Cambridge ICT Starters Qualifications.
