Empowering Young Minds Everywhere: Five Teams Advance To Final Round Of $15M Global Learning XPRIZE

15 Millionen Dollar sind insgesamt ausgelobt. 1 Millionen hat jeder der fünf Finalisten bereits sicher. Die Hürde, die sie nehmen mussten: „… software solutions to enable children to teach themselves basic reading, writing and arithmetic.“ Jetzt sollen die Lösungen 15 Monate lang in Tansania getestet werden. Viele sind dabei: die UNESCO, das World Food Programme (WFP), das Government of Tanzania und Google, das 8.000 Pixel C-Tablets spendiert. Der Sieger („… whose solution enables the greatest proficiency gains in reading, writing and arithmetic“) erhält am Ende die verbleibenden 10 Millionen Dollar. Open Source/ Open Content sind Kriterien, die die Wettbewerber erfüllen müssen. Und was sich in Tansania bewährt … Das Projekt erinnert mich irgendwie an One Laptop per Child.
