Library For All Kickstarter Seeks To Support Global Literacy

Library For All Kickstarter Seeks To Support Global Literacy | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Mobile access around the world continues to expand, yet access to educational materials is still largely limited in developing countries. What’s the hold up?... Shipping books is costly – and more often than not – the material is outdated, culturally disparate, and/or linguistically incompatible with the end users. In short, the books being sent aren’t beneficial if the kids are unable to understand what they’re reading. Library For All wants to change this reality by launching a digital library platform in Haiti this Fall."

EDTECH@UTRGV's insight:

Cool idea... I would support this effort.
