The cost of hardware is decreasing much faster than the cost of Internet bandwidth; devices like the Raspberry Pi and low-end Android tablets open up computing to new segments of humanity.
In the absence of Internet connectivity, content and software can be distributed through existing human networks, carried on USB sticks and other portable devices to be shared with others.
In order to enable access for as many people as possible, our tools are designed to run on a broad diversity of devices, ranging from old repurposed hardware, to a wide variety of new low-cost devices.
Every person, community, or country knows its own needs and values best, and our role is to collaborate in supporting self-fulfilment, not to dictate solutions. We want to create tools to allow people to learn, teach, create, and share on their own terms.
Our tools aim to support diverse user needs, in both classrooms and informal learning environments. We work with our partners to understand and support the needs of contexts that range from orphanages, to schools, to prisons, to refugee camps, to homes.
