Innovation of education in The Gambia

What if education in The Gambia could take a leapfrog – in the same way mobile banking has done?

This what we asked ourselves when we recently visited the country together with Justien Marseille from The Future Institute. What we learned from talking to many inspiring Gambian people is that there’s a great need for skills training and that the time to introduce new ways to educate people is right. It also reminded us that innovation is often realized in the ‘how’ and not just in the ‘what’. For the different possible future education concepts we created we were inspired by new learning approaches such as makers labs, micro-credentials and peer-to-peer teaching.

Could you also take a leapfrog by focusing on how you offer your products and services?
