In the Summer of 2020, Bean Group Global partnered with the INCO Group, with support from Google.org, to help enhance digital readiness of educators and develop blended approaches to educational programming in Spain and China.
In Spain, BGG helped guide Fundación Balia in moving their psychosocial counseling and academic support programs to digital platforms for their at-risk student population. Our support included the development of an organization- wide digital strategy, curriculum development, evaluation criteria, and coaching and training for staff with limited digital exposure.
In China, BGG worked in concert with the INCO Group and the China Development Research Foundation to develop a digital strategy for students in China’s largely rural western provinces by benchmarking China’s rural education program to other nation-wide digital strategies. During COVID-19, we successfully connected marginalized youth to virtual instruction amidst a sudden shift in pedagogical approach using digital platforms.
