Education Apps For All
Around the world, 250 million children face almost insurmountable literacy challenges: Ill-equipped (or non-existent) primary schools, inadequate curriculum, dire poverty, illiterate parents, and no books at home. But Education Apps for All is changing that, with a field-tested solution called MoToLi 4.0. This open source app is customizable to any language with an alphabet, incorporating culturally conscious content. The team has documented success in three languages: Khmer, Swahili, and English. The Education Apps for All team comprises experts from 12 nations, including experts in reading pedagogy, mobile learning and technology, computer science, instructional design, game design, commercial illustration, storytelling, digital and social entrepreneurship, organizational development, and tech policy. Together, the team envisions a future in which all children can learn to read--and learn to learn--changing lives, changing communities, and changing the world.
Our solution, MoToLi 4.0 is a self-directed reading and math app for use by children 5 and older alone, in small groups, or in the classroom — customizable for any language and any culture.
