Bringing interactive e-learning and resources on core conservation topics to primary school teachers and children across Sub-Saharan Africa

iLearnabout is an innovative digital education resource that aims to fill a critical gap in children’s education, by providing teachers and learners across Sub-Saharan Africa with a range of appropriate materials free of charge to any school or organisation.

Developed by the iAfrica Foundation, a UK charity, iLearnabout will increase awareness and understanding of environmental and conservation challenges and solutions as extra curricula support designed to inspire practical action by supplementing and reinforcing existing teaching.

Key partners including Wildlife Clubs of Kenya, Africa Network for Animal Welfare and the Elsa Conservation Trust recently conducted a pilot study using a range of scenarios in urban and rural communities and teaching centres, different age groups and teacher training options. The e-learning content was well received by teachers and children, with 72% of those tested showing a knowledge gain.

The range of topics, guided by national curricula and the Sustainable Development Goals, includes Biodiversity, Climate Change, Wildlife Conservation and Financial Literacy. The materials are available online and downloadable for easy use in the classroom via projectors, mobile phones, screens and tablets.

iLearnabout aims to bring interactive e-learning and resources on core conservation topics to Sub-Saharan Africa. Each iLearnabout topic explores global issues aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, through digital learning and local investigations. Each module is freely available online and downloadable for offline use on mobile phones, tablets, computers and projectors and are designed to be taught as extra-curricular lessons outside of school hours in after school clubs. Children then choose and carry out local projects linked to the topic, developing knowledge, values and competencies to become actors for change.
