La Aldea is a learning universe for children and families to learn more about the COVID-19 pandemic, and continue the home schooling process

La Aldea: Stories to stay at home (www.LaAldea.co)

Colombia
La Aldea (The Village) is a multi-platform pedagogical strategy focused on educating children in citizenship and socio-emotional skills. In this learning universe, based on stories of a group of animals, children have fun while reflecting on the world that surrounds them. La Aldea has been used by over 50,000 students and 1,000 teachers in Colombia and Mexico, with organizations such as UNICEF.
Introduction

Strategy for Education in the context of COVID-19

“And then, the unthinkable happened, La Aldea closed its gates. The quarantine was in effect, and no one could have imagined the challenges it would bring.”

What we do?

Click is an education agency dedicated to imagining new ways to learn. Since 2011, it has designed books, games, objects, and apps for children and adults to spark conversations about citizenship, conflict resolution, the environment, and sexuality. Click has worked with more than 50,000 students and 1,000 teachers in Colombia and Mexico, with organizations such as UNICEF, the Colombian Ministry of National Education, the International Red Cross, the UNHCR, the IOM and more than 200 public and private educational institutions.

Why we do it?

The Coronavirus epidemic is testing our health, the way we organize ourselves and make decisions, the way we interact with others, and the way we educate ourselves. Back home with our families we are left with a distorted notion of time, surrounded by confusion, changing emotions, and questions that we do not know how to answer.

The pandemic confronts educational communities with a double challenge: turning family time into spaces of dialogue, learning, and fun, while empowering teachers to carry out meaningful learning processes from a distance. For this reason, now is the time to imagine new spaces for education and new ways of learning.
