The GLOBAL LEARNING XPRIZE: a $15 Million Competition to Empower Children to Take Control of Their Own Learning.
The Global Learning XPRIZE challenges teams from around the world to develop open source and scalable software that will enable children in developing countries to teach themselves basic reading, writing and arithmetic. There is an 18 month field-testing phase. Once the 18-month field-testing phase concludes, the prize purse will be objectively awarded to the team that generates the best international standardized test scores within the group of participating children.
The Education Apps For All team believes that innovative solutions can improve education in developing nations, where it is critically needed. Our team is committed to delivering a culturally-conscious solution designed by educators who have been trained in best practices for effective reading, literacy, and numeracy pedagogy.
