  “Accelerating Learning for Children in Developing Countries: A Summary”  

Are you searching for strategies that can improve, enhance, and even speed up the learning process for primary-level students around the world?

If so, then I invite you to review “Accelerating Learning for Children in Developing Countries: Joining Research and Practice.” There are two related publications: a comprehensive research study, and a summary. Developed under the Basic Education and Policy Support (BEPS) Activity, these publications are part of a series of documents funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in an effort to further improve the quality, effectiveness, and access to formal and nonformal education.

Originated in the 1970s to improve the learning of foreign languages, accelerated learning has now been adapted for use with different education programs in both the industrialized and developing worlds to help children learn more, faster. This research draws together knowledge on accelerated learning from both the educational and development literature for the benefit of education planners and practitioners. The research reveals interesting insights concerning the definition of accelerated learning, the principles and practices that apply to the western and developing world contexts, a suggested framework for operating an accelerated learning program in developing countries, and conditions under which accelerated learning programs could be considered.
