A few months ago, MIT’s $100 laptops project impressed me, not so much for what it has to offer those in the “developing nations” that MIT are trying to reach, but for the inspiration and political influence such an ambition gives people in the “developed nations”.
But the MobilED project looks set to totally surpass MITs efforts and impact.
Its obvious really! Delivering on the constant chatter and promises of mobile learning, MobilED has cracked it I reckon. A simple concept, made possible by free and open source software – mobilED is the use of a phone to txt message a search on a wiki and receive a call back with a robotic voice reading the results.
But MobilED is much more than that, as its very stylish videos demonstrate.
MobilED is doing everything right with this project. I am totally inspired and politically charged!
