SEEK: Social Emotional & Ecological Knowledge

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.

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, schools, caregivers buy licences to implement Rangeet’s SEEK+M&E tools. Facilitators use an app to teach in many languages & input data (class,iterative,tests). A backend helps admins manage the program. Users are trained & supported via the app. M&E tools provide timely insight to admins/donors. Operable offline, the app resolves access issues. Rangeet has 3 umbrellas (Self,Society,Ecology) with 75x1hr lessons. Through guided play children develop socio-emotional/6Cs skills & ecological knowledge. Activities are tagged based on skill, teaching method & mapped to core curricula.

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/3dM9u1v), 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
