The New Idea
In Argentina, a significant number of children enrolled in school are advancing without ever learning to read and write. As a teacher and community educator for many years, Beatriz Diuk saw that this serious but invisible problem was going unaddressed – neither teachers nor schools have the tools to assist these students, so an increasing number are graduating lacking these necessary skills for citizenship. Beatriz has designed a way, through 25 minute-long sessions of playful learning, to catch up illiterate children with their peers and alleviate frustrated teachers by providing them with simple tools to address this gap.
