iHub Research and Karibu Centre are conducting a 9-month research study in schools in Thika, among students in Early Childhood Development (ECD) classes (pre-unit, standard 1 and 2). The study will enable the research team to establish if there are benefits to introducing a computer program to students in ECD to improve their literacy.
The research project is being conducted in four schools in Thika. Students in three of the schools are exposed to a computer program every week called Waterford Early Learning. The study hopes to evaluate the effectiveness of the computer program and how it contributes to students' overall performance.
