With an unwavering commitment to seeing an educated Africa where everyone can reach their full potential, Accelerated Education Enterprises (AEE) offers a compelling solution to the education crisis in South Africa.
It is not an overstatement to say that South African education is in crisis. The crisis is evident in the statistics that show declining results, insurmountable learning deficits and alarming dropout rates (Viljoen, 2015).
Is there any good news?
At Accelerated Education Enterprises they say, “Absolutely YES! There is a solution.”
AEE develops, distributes and implements a system of education that is supported by extensive, sound research and has a proven track record. However, embracing the system requires advancement and change. This can be challenging for individuals and a nation stuck in a cycle of repetition. We have to ask ourselves, “Do we have a choice?” In the words of Elon Musk, “Some people don’t like change but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster.” If we do not find a way to streamline, improve and advance education in South Africa and developing countries, we will continue on this disastrous path.
“Education needs a new form of delivery that is appropriate for each individual.” – Fred Keller.
Personal System of Instruction (PSI), also known as the Keller Plan, was first described by Fred Keller in ‘Good-bye Teacher’, an article published in the Journal of Applied Behaviour Analysis in 1968. The system is composed of small, self-paced, modularised units of instruction where study guides direct learners through the modules. Unit tests are given on each module and learners must show mastery by scoring at least 90% before they can continue on the programme.
