Nationwide Project

Beyond "chalk and talk"
achievable ICT to empower teachers
through large screen presentations

New by Visual Teach: The Nationwide Visualisation Project  
Visual Curriculum Kits for 5 key-subjects plus 15 large screens and 15 strong 400 Watt projectors per school are the basis for implementing visualisation as a nationwide teaching strategy, including training and institutionalisation at all levels in your education service.

For high schools - only electricity needed
The new "Nationwide Visualisation Project" offers the missing intermediate step needed until the didactics and technology of IT, computer assisted learning, are mature, the infrastructure secure and teachers fully prepared for flexible use of IT in the classroom. 

7 viewpoints 

Viewpoint 1: Teaching tools for each lesson
                     in 15 classrooms per school  
3 classrooms will be equipped for each of 5 key subjects:
Geography, History, Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics

high-tech products yet low-tech use         

Viewpoint 2: Better teaching - Better results
from "chalk and talk" to visual teaching 

Visualisation, for education the most important innovation of the 
information revolution, will increase efficiency in learning 

-  one image says more then a thousand words  -

Viewpoint 3: Modernisation of education
     from repetitive learning to development of thinking skills

Viewpoint 4: Soft- and hardware per school
about 640 kilo, 44 boxes - 3 pallets of teaching supplies  

e.g. for 300 schools: 13 containters (40 ft HQ)        

          Viewpoint 5: Teacher training (eg for 300 highschools, Uganda)
Capacity building:  presentation skills - how to make 
effective visuals - interactive teaching to make students think

Viewpoint 6: Durable modernisation of education
visualisation is a key lever to lift local education up to   
international standards - just add some care to make this happen

Viewpoint 7: This investment cannot wait 
"If you want to know what is expensive: calculate the costs of ignorance" 
stated already Pres. Neyerere (Tanzania).   
A recent OECD Pisa report underpins this with overwhelming figures, 
see: "The High Cost of Low Educational Performance - The Long-Run 
Economic Impact of Improving" (**

In our information age visualisation is most urgent - as well as to step
from repetitive learning up to development of thinking skills
This Project prepares both pupils and teachers for a better future.  
In terms of development of education this modernisation 
is achieved is at remarkable low costs - nationwide.  

** The OECD Pisa report also shows that it is the quality of learning outcomes, not the length of schooling, which makes the difference. A modest goal of all OECD countries boosting their average PISA scores by 25 points over the next 20 years would increase OECD gross domestic product by USD 115 trillion over the lifetime of the generation born in 2010. More aggressive goals could result in gains in the order of USD 260 trillion.

For IPA and donor facilitators: this Project is the most (cost-)effective way to modernise teaching.  
Strongest points: teacher's choice - immediately applicable - durable.  

Price is after discount: per school not €24,435 but c€9,200 only
- minimum 100 schools (discount is on normal school price of items)
Average investment per teacher is €460 only and includes the hard- and software, training and  implementation program and institutionalisation at all levels in your education service.
Visual Teach implements an historic innovation in your country: from chalk and talk to visualisation, based on interactive teaching within 5 months. This is a one-off investment in ICT that really works. No other innovation can modernise teaching so effectively.

Plug in now. Why wait any longer?

‘Innovative product’  Donor facilitators as in Brussels (EU) and The Hague (NL) describe the Nationwide Visualisation Project as an ‘innovative product’ worth prioritising. To implement the Nationwide Visualisation Project any Ministry of Education can apply for an extra budget from the local donor group (or in the Balkans/EU - IPA funds). Present an implemetation plan, carefully worked out for your country and success is likely.

Your Excellencies,

Wouldn't it be lovely to relax and enjoy dealing with your daily challenges after you have put in motion an historic innovation: altering teaching on high schools from "chalk and talk" to visual education?
This now is possible.
The wide scale use of our powerful teaching tools can be realised - safe and sound - within 4 months at low budget. It is a great pleasure to inform you about the Nationwide Visualisation Project: a total innovation programme with inbuilt processes for effective implementation, that is fit to answer the need of secondary schools in your country (and many others) for innovative educational appliances. The book enclosed gives the overview.

The Visualisation Project focusses on the use of the overhead projector and instructional visuals that address the national curriculum goals of five key subjects (geography, history, biology, physics and chemistry). This product already has proved to be of great importance in the process of teaching in Europe and schools elsewhere. Although computer and Internet made their entry in European schools after (about) 2002, even there the overhead projector remains the most reliable educational appliance, because of its simple technology, not prone to failure. Important to realise further is that there is no steep learning curve for teachers. To improve student learning and bring teaching at a higher level, this one-off investment can be recommended, especially to countries where one has to cope with restricted financial resources.

Having a good and beautiful product is one thing, getting it implemented and being used in all school and by most teachers, is another thing. For that reason the Visualisation Project has been enriched and developed now into an implementation programme in four simple steps. It aims at visualisation as a normal daily teaching strategy. Every step is designed to make things work, not in our minds, but in the classrooms of your schools. Headmasters and teachers as well as the NCDC and the Ministry of Education can fully rely on this programme.

In four steps the schools and their teachers are informed, prepared, instructed, provided with projector and visual curriculum kits, trained (and - in a fifth step, also further trained in the future).
Management and teachers will very soon feel comfortable being able to use this innovative appliance:
- up to date transparencies and equipment, soon well installed 
- brochures and letters to inform - step by step,
- manuals for teachers, trainers and visual assistants
- a time path for implementation
- information for the local press.
Every facet in this huge operation has been made ready for direct use.
Of course the programme can be adapted to any local variation you may specify. But the framework and content, the result of experience and realistic thinking about what can be expected in each step of such a process, are ready now.

The ministry is advised to adopt this 'top-down' process in order to innovate secondary schools fast and effectively. Such large scale and complex initiative requires forward thinking and organising things in a simple and proper way, by the ministry as central agency.

For ca. US$15,000 per school this design for a nationwide ICT project - including the programme for implementation, the projectors, screens and curriculum kits for five subjects - can be offered to you when ca. 300 schools are part of the programme (large schools may take the place of two small ones).

Please let your secondary schools with electricity be prepared to meet tomorrow's challenges.
Please inform me what you think of this proposal. If you need any support from my side - do not hesitate to ask.

I look forward to your reaction.

Yours sincerely,

Drs. Jan Krol, Director Visual Teach large screen presentations - achievable ICT
