1. Carry out a pilot programme to test reactions to the service
● It is important to run early testing to gain valuable insights into how your organisation should operate this process
● This will help you to identify and address obstacles before rolling out the recipe on a larger scale
● Test for how you will roll out content
● Decide on how content will be created and presented
2. Hire a digitally skilled team
● Identify what skills will be needed for this project
● Assess whether these skills are already present in your team
● If any necessary skills are not present within your team, decide whether you will train an existing team member or bring in a new hire or outside consultant
3. Supply materials to teachers
● Ensure teachers have smartphones, data packages, and other digital materials to train teachers
● Set up a green screen studio for filming videos
4. Deliver lessons
● Begin delivery of educational content
● Gather as much information as possible for later processes of assessment and optimisation
5. Offer ongoing support
● Make sure that staff members are supported
● In this recipe, Project Officers offer ongoing support to teachers. The teacher themselves receive regular refresher training
6. Assess and give feedback
● Conduct regular interviews and focus groups with children, parents, and teachers
● These should look at the whole programme, with a specific section focusing on the digital aspect
● These learnings should be used to optimise and improve the service
