Ribbon HOLISTIC EDUCATION
SEEK: Social Emotional & Ecological Knowledge

Rangeet

location_on India
An app for facilitators (teachers, communities, caregivers) featuring a play-based, measurable SEEK curriculum & resources supporting the UNSDGs. SEEK promotes wellbeing & develops agency & global stewardship in children in any context. It's grounded in the science of learning, enables teachers to augment core curricula & aims to address learner variability. Only one device is needed to implement.
Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution
Human relationships are at the core of loving & learning. Through song & playful activities, Rangeet flexes our social muscles & prepares children to be tomorrow’s carers, thinkers & citizens.

about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Quality education is unevenly distributed, worsened by access issues.
Schools focus on rote methods ignoring learner variability. The science of learning states that children learn best through play & that the 6Cs & socio-emotional skills are foundational.
Understanding the value of & our relationship with ecology & the role we can play to mitigate climate change is crucial to developing agency.

How does your innovation work in practice?

NGOs, caregivers, private/public schools buy licences to implement Rangeet’s platform consisting of SEEK+M&E tools. Facilitators use a mobile device to teach & input data (class, iterative, tests) in multiple languages. A web backend helps program administrators manage the implementation. Users are trained & supported via the app. M&E tools provide real-time insight to administrators/donors. Operable offline, the app resolves access issues.
Rangeet has 3 umbrellas (Self, Society, Ecology) with 75x1hr lessons. Through play-based methods children develop socio-emotional/6Cs skills & ecological knowledge. Activities are tagged based on skill, teaching method & mapped to core curricula. Facilitators can search for activities helpful to their contexts, addressing learner variability. Umbrella pre/post tests are tagged enabling measurement of specific outcomes.

How has it been spreading?

Goal: Build coalitions to implement across the Global South to reach 500k facilitators/2.5million children in schools & communities.
30k children & 2k facilitators engaged. Student answers improved by 25-30% in endline/baseline tests. 90% of facilitators reported enriched pedagogy. More on impact: https://bit.ly/3yvzyDY
Recognised as a UN Best Practice in SDG 4&5 (https://bit.ly/3hk77AI), Hundred.org Holistic Education Challenge Winner, Jacobs Foundation/MITSolve Most Promising Innovation Equitable Classrooms Challenge (https://bit.ly/3us69YP). Cited by Brookings Institution as a playful learning model (https://bit.ly/3nWsLxd)
Jacobs Centre for Productive Youth Development is conducting a study across many settings to evaluate the impact of SEEK on children/teachers in the short/long term

HundrED Academy Review

The idea of an app for facilitators only makes this viable for scale as providing digital technologies for fewer people is easier in low resource or remote settings.

- HundrED Academy Member


Project Randeet is clearly impacting schools, educators & students in a wide context of settings. Students speak of their understandings with passion & the lessons aim for social impact within communities. The app is content rich, real world issues.

IMPACT & SCALABILITY
The use of apps to reach educators and students to share their views on diverse topics makes it easily accessible and impactful. The focus on social and emotional areas are important aspects of development that need to be discussed more often.
