Abstract

شهدت قطر نمواً اقتصادياً سريعاً في العقود الأخيرة، ووجهت استثمارات هائلة نحو قطاع التعليم بهدف تحسين النتائج التعليمية. وتطمح رؤية قطر الوطنية 2030 لتشجيع التعلم مدى الحياة؛ ومن العوامل المساعدة على ذلك تعزيز ثقافة القراءة. وتهدف الدراسة التي بين أيدينا إلى تقييم أحد البرامج التي سعت نحو تمكين هذا التغيير والوسائل المستخدمة في هذا الصدد، لتقدم بهذا شاهداً ودليلاً من دولة لم تحظَ بالدراسة الكافية في ظل ما تشهده من تحول سريع. ويظهر من هذا الدليل وجود تحسّن كبير لدى غالبية الأطفال المشاركين في البرنامج في موقفهم من القراءة وسلوكياتهم في هذا الشأن دون ملاحظة أي فوارق على أساس الجنس. كما تُظهر النتائج بالنظر إلى ما كان عليه الحال قبل المشاركة في البرنامج أن غالبية الأطفال المشاركين يقضون وقتاً أطول في القراءة، وأن غالبية الآباء يقضون كذلك وقتاً أكبر في القراءة لأطفالهم. ومع ذلك فإن هذه التغييرات الإيجابية لا نجدها بالضرورة لدى كل الأطفال أو الآباء. كذلك وجدنا مجموعة من العقبات الرئيسية التي تقف حائلاً دون التغيير، منها ما يتعلق بقيود زمنية أو تحديات تتصل بالتكنولوجيا، فضلاً عن بعض الصعوبات الفردية. وبناءً على تقييم دراسة الحالة هذه، نقدّم عدداً من التوصيات لتحسين أنشطة البرنامج، خاصة فيما يتعلق بالعقبات وبهدف التوسع في نطاق البرنامج ومستوى شموله.
