Anseye Pou Ayiti
Teach for Haiti uses CommCare to help recruit, train, and equip teachers, while also tracking their performance against personalized growth plans.
Anseye Pou Ayiti (Teach for Haiti) seeks to raise education outcomes in rural Haiti by recruiting, training, and equipping teacher-leaders to promote teacher excellence and student success. Their CommCare application enables pedagogical coaches to track teachers’ growth according to their individual professional growth plans and the organization’s competencies framework and assists pedagogical coaches in conducting classroom observations and coaching sessions with teachers.
UNICEF Ghana uses CommCare to track and assess attendence, security, and lesson plan adherence in schools across the country.
UNICEF Ghana is using CommCare as an e-checklist to track and assess child-friendliness of schools across the country. The checklists monitor teacher and student attendance, assess facilities for safety and sanitation, track lesson plan adherence and classroom behavior, and compare results to a school’s past performance and community involvement. Field workers have the ability to enter data in real time for supervisors to assess schools’ performance on relevant indicators.
