The Importance of FLN in Education

Foundational literacy and numeracy are the cornerstones of a child's education, and their importance cannot be overstated. These fundamental skills lay the groundwork for a lifetime of learning and success, serving as the building blocks upon which all other knowledge is constructed.

Literacy skills, including reading and writing, enable students to access a world of information and ideas. Without them, comprehension and communication become major hurdles. Numeracy skills, on the other hand, provide the ability to understand and work with numbers, which is vital not only in fields like mathematics and science but also in everyday tasks such as budgeting, shopping, and problem-solving.

Moreover, strong foundational literacy and numeracy skills empower individuals to think critically, make informed decisions, and participate effectively in society. They boost self-confidence and open doors to higher education and better career opportunities.

In essence, foundational literacy and numeracy are the keys that unlock the doors of knowledge and opportunity. It is crucial for educators, parents, and policymakers to prioritise these skills in the early years of a child's education to ensure a solid foundation for a brighter future.

Measureme™, our Self-Assessment + Randomised Social Audit (SARSA) platform for education, can help your child quickly improve in their foundational literacy and numeracy skills. We believe it is the first platform of this kind in Kerala and probably the entire world, especially in its use as a social audit platform.

Measureme’s self-evaluation, self-practice, and social audit content are built around a core of foundational literacy and numeracy. For each higher class, we add layer upon layer of new categories of questions to this foundation. Remarkably, though, Measureme begins the assessment of a student in any class with the alphabet. I hope this article explains the reasons for that approach.
