The HEAD Foundation and Enuma launched Sekolah Enuma Field Test in Indonesia

After months of dedicated research and development, Sekolah Enuma Indonesia (SEI), a digital learning platform for young Indonesian learners based on Enuma, Inc.’s award-winning Kitkit School, has been launched for field testing in Indonesia.

Running from mid-January to early April 2021, the field test involves 122 children aged five to nine years old from nine community centres in the Deli Serdang area near Medan. On every weekday, the participating children gather in the community centres for 45 to 60 minutes to play on the learning app, which includes hundreds of games, books and videos covering three subjects: local literacy (Bahasa Indonesia), Mathematics and English as a second language. With well-researched curriculum and thoughtfully-designed flow and structure, SEI 1.0 engages children in an exciting gamified learning experience with minimal supervision and without having to connect to the Internet.

The SEI product localisation and field test in Deli Serdang are supported by a grant from The HEAD Foundation and managed by Enuma, Inc., in collaboration with Yayasan Fondasi Hidup (FH) as the local implementation partner. A similar field test is being conducted in parallel with more than 400 children in Lampung in South Sumatera. At the end of the field tests, feedback and learning outcomes of the children will be analysed for product improvement and fine-tuning. We are targeting to roll out SEI 2.0 to many more young learners at larger pilot sites during the second half of 2021.
