Study Technology Projects
Study Technology Project Sudan
In January 2003 a project team licensed by
Applied Scholastics International went to Sudan to deliver a pilot
program in Study Technology.
Twenty nine senior educators and education
ministry officials participated in an intensive two week training
program learning the three barriers to study and how to overcome
them, the reasons why students run into difficulties and find it
difficult to study and apply their knowledge, and how to help them
to achieve their educational goals. This pilot program was greatly
appreciated by all who participated.
The training team consisted of Veronica Tupholme
who is Head Teacher of the UK’s leading Study Technology school;
Johan Schokker, with many years’ experience of Study Technology as a
business trainer; Louis Scott who has 20 years of experience as a
Study Technology supervisor in Africa and Alan Cook who has over 25
years’ experience as a Study Technology supervisor. The fifth member
of the team was the well known classical Arabic singer, Noura Ben
Amor (stage name Gamar), who assisted the team with her knowledge of
Arabic culture and also participated in a popular current affairs TV
programme and enthralled the large audience with some of her songs.

This project is now used as a model for Applied
Learning Techniques International programs.
Study Technology Project Gambia
In 1999, the Gambian High Commissioner to Great
Britain, the Hon. Mr. John Bojang, and the Honourable Secretary of
State for Education, Mrs. Anne Therese Ndong-Jatta, were introduced
to the benefits of Mr. Hubbard’s learning technology during a visit
to his home in Sussex, England, and to a nearby school using these
This initial visit was followed by a visit to
England by a team of four senior education officers from the
Department of State for Education in November 1999 to be trained in
the basics of Study Technology.
The Department of State for Education then
requested assistance in carrying out the implementation of the Study
Technology in all its schools in the Gambia from ABLE (Association
for Better Living and Education) International and from Applied
Scholastics International consultants in the United Kingdom. Early
in 2000, training courses were run in the Gambia for officers and
teachers in collaboration with the Gambia College.
In June 2000, a team from Applied Scholastics,
led by Mrs. Ann Roberts, visited the country and ran a pilot course
for teachers. Several meetings were also held to look at the way
forward, the most urgent consideration being the sourcing of funds.
Since then both parties have made funding applications which it is
hoped will receive positive responses.
Applied Scholastics consultants recently proposed
a two-stage plan for the further training of all teachers in The
Gambia. This plan is based upon successful actions taken elsewhere,
such as in Mexico, where 33,000 teachers and students were trained
in under ten weeks by the “Campana Mexicana para Mejorar el Estudio”
(Mexican Campaign for Improving Education), an Applied Scholastics
Study Technology Project Zimbabwe
The programme in Zimbabwe has been running since
1994. Two Sudanese educationalists visited the programme in the
Selukwe District of the Midland Region with Lord and Lady McNair in
1998. In the eight years the programme has been running, tens of
thousands of teachers have been trained to use Study Technology in
their teaching and about a hundred thousand children have been
taught to use it whenever they study.
Study Technology Project Philippines
Recently the Government of the Philippines
authorised the printing of the Study Books in a special edition to
reflect the local version of English for use in all the country’s
Study Technology Project Pakistan
An Applied Scholastics representative recently
returned to the UK from Islamabad where she was working with the
Minister for Education, the Permanent Secretary and the Federal
Directorate of Education. She has been training teachers within the
Federal Directorate of Education where the Director General selects
teachers for training as trainers.
Study Technology Project Mongolia
In 2000, a delegation from Mongolia visited
Greenfields School in Sussex, southern England to find out about
Study Technology and see it in action in the classroom. After a
stimulating discussion, members of the delegation felt that this
methodology could be of benefit to the Mongolian education system.
In 2003 Applied Scholastics consultants from the UK visited Mongolia
in response to an increasing level of interest in Study Technology
in educational and political circles there.
