Educational technologies can have a truly positive effect on teaching, but they require a solid and reliable infrastructure and the right skills to seize them.
At Beekee, we provide you tools and support to improve learning effectively.
Using digital tools is not an option in certain contexts because of the missing infrastructure: no (or unreliable) Internet access, few computers available, intermittent power cuts.
We propose a solution for teachers and instructors to improve the engagement of their lessons by boosting participation. Meet the Beekee Box, a portable learning platform that can be used everywhere and does not require access to the Internet.Want to know more about the Beekee Box?
But the tool alone does not suffice. You will need different skills to take full advantage of digital tools to improve learning effectively.
At Beekee, we support you from A to Z by providing hands-on training, techno-pedagogical support, and by developing tailor-made solutions for you.Want to know more about our services?
Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Border) desired to deliver interactive training programs in the field using the potential of digital tools. But the reality in the field is rather challenging: missing infrastructure, poor connectivity, changing conditions.
We worked together towards a solution based on the Beekee Box, allowing learners to rapidly retrieve documents shared by the instructor, perform assessments, and collaborate with peers in real-time using their smartphones. And this anywhere in the world their missions take them.
InZone built a Learning Hub (a solar-powered container with a dozen computers) enabling refugees at the Kakuma refugee camp in northern Kenya to follow higher-education courses. But more was needed to reach and serve the 200 000+ refugees on-site.
We proposed to create multiple 'satellite' Learning Hubs using the Beekee Box and to distribute them across the camp. This bridged access to knowledge and allowed refugees to follow complete InZone's certificate programs using their smartphones.
Prof. Steiner wanted to make their learners active by sharing and discussing pictures of their observations during a field trip. But even in the Swiss mountains, the Internet connection is not always present... and there are no electrical outlets.
She took a Beekee Box with an extra power bank in her backpack, ready for an entire day of discovery and sharing.
