I just made an application for 10 XO laptops as part of the OLPC program. The application titled “Game based applications to enhance literacy in Rural Kenya” aims to get some laptops to upperhill academy kisii.
If successful we will deploy games to enhance literacy, with specific focus on English and Swahili. We will start off with existing applications, which have been done by others. All we need to do is domesticate to our context and then gradually develop our own.
We hope to work with University students to develop localized applications for our rural kids.
Maybe you have ideas on how to develop or customize real applications that kids can use to enhance their learning. We will be more than happy learn from you as we share our experiences.
Thanks and hope for the best.
