Full Session Description (As long as you would like):
Postpone the alphabet until the child can read. That seeming contradiction means reading will no longer be a problem for education. My experience in the last three years are the best illustration that I can give.
In May of 2017, I was invited by Dr. Robert Zenhausern to coordinate the education 21st programme of Enabling Support Foundation . This programme had a goal to bring education into the 21st century.
The heart of the program is different approach to teaching reading that treats understanding the printed word as simple as understanding the spoken word. We understand the spoken word as a whole word not from its individual sounds. Our approach is simple and not expensive. Our goal is that children start school reading and writing.
My 1st task as a coordinator of Kenya for Enabling Support Foundation was to develop Early reading program. In Jun 2017 I contacted 8 daycare centers in the slums of Nairobi and taught the teachers the use of early reading. This procedure continued for 4 month and the progress is available on video tapes. At the end of 4 month , pre-school children were reading and writing 3 sentences paragraph.
What will the audience learn? They will learn the history and implications of early reading from its beginning in the slums of Nairobi to the latest sites in Rwanda and Pakistan. They will also learn how we collaborate in our peace flame network through Microsoft office 365 infrastructure and what app groups.
What will happen? In my presentation, the audience will get firsthand account on how education for the 21st century was born in Uganda and grew in Kenya. I will share videos of the growth of early reading and have guest speakers who were there also.
The audience will have the chance to join us and enroll with peace flame to connect everyday lesson plan and activities to the SDG N0.4 and explore new ways that can bring relevance into Education 21st century.
Thank you for your proposal. Your proposal can benefit from further clarifications and edits.
1) Your title needs to be changed. It does not relate to your session description. At the very lease, please remove "I was there."
2) Under the full description, you refer to "a program". What program? There is missing background information. Please explain your program, its goals and your role in it.
Once you have made some changes, let me know and I will review it again.
Thank you Lucy for your feedback. Will work on it then revert asap.
