ASSET Partnership with MILLEE-Carnegie Mellon University
By Ray Umashankar - Executive Director
I am very pleased to announce a partnership with the MILLEE project directed by Professor Matt Kam of Carnegie Mellon University. I serve as adviser to the MILLEE project.
MILLEE stands for : Mobile and Immersion Learning for Literacy in Emerging Economies.
It is centered on Cellphone applications that enable children in the developing world to acquire language literacy game-like environments. MILLEE aims to make localized language learning resources more accessible to underprivileged children, at times and places that are more convenient than schools. The design methodology is based on best practices in commercial language learning packages and the traditional village games that children in the developing world play.
MILLEE has received major technology and
financial support from Nokia and the project is being implemented in schools run by the Byrraju Foundation in Andhra Pradesh.
MILLEE will be implemented on a pilot basis at ASSET India Foundation's newest location in Hyderabad "Arunodhaya" which serves more than 100 children of sex workers and HIV infected parents.
