Building Foundations for Learning – Paper presented at the UNESCO Asia Summit, Bangkok 24-26 Feb, 2016

On behalf of my organisation I wish to thank UNESCO Bangkok for the privilege of this opportunity for sharing our education innovations at this Asia Summit. These education innovations have aimed at developing a conceptually sound and effective Foundation Programme for Early Literacy and Learning with a well defined and simple framework that allows the flexibility to address the individual needs of young learners. Our focus has been on pedagogy and classroom processes which have been arrived at through sustained engagement with the ground over a period of time. We have also tried to engage with some of the multiple perspectives through which early literacy and learning are being viewed within current literature. Through this modest effort we have been constantly reminded of the words of the Chairperson of the National Reading Panel.
