We are so grateful to all those who donated to this project!
Since July we have been working with local clients and employers to better understand barriers to employment and training for refugees and immigrants and the desired skillsets that employers seek. With this data we are designing a 4 -tiered curriculum- ESL, technical skills, soft skills, digital literacy- to overome barriers to employment and prepare adult reugees and immigrants to be competitive in the job market. We believe that this curriculum can be adapted to our offline digital library making vocational training more accessible for marginalized populations in refugee camps and remote locations.
Our patented offline library has potential to improve access to education around the world, but we cannot create effective curriculua without the expertise and feedback of our clients and partners. To build our curriculum and improve our device we incorprorate a user centered design. It is essential that we have a clear understanding of the challenges faced by our target audience, the motivations to use our ODL and the end goals of our population in order to build a useful, effective and sustainable solution.
We believe our Teach by Tech offline digital library has the potential to transform education in remote locations as it expands access to a variety of education instruction and mateials. The sky is the limit as multiple subjects, topics and languages can be aded to the device to localize content. The best part is that no internet is needed and the device can be powered using solar power. We could not find success without you. Please tell your friends and colleagues about our project and help us spread the word about our remarkable device. Thank you for all you do to help Teach by Tech grow and increase access to education around the world!
