L2L is beginning a completely new phase of educational support at Kokobe Primary School. Through a collaboration with Arizona State University, we will be bringing “education in a box” to the students. The XO Laptops currently used will be phased out and replaced with the Kindle Fire. Students will be able to access the SolarSPELL Educational Library. The SolarSPELL is a rugged, portable, solar-powered digitized library which includes an offline digital hotspot, designed to simulate an online experience. Currently, more than 275 SPELL libraries have been deployed across the Pacific and East Africa. The content can be specific to the area and offer many resources for teachers and students.
The school has little space for a dedicated computer lab and the principal requested our help in building a dedicated computer classroom and library. That will be phase 1 of the project. The computer lab will have a solar-powered electrical system to charge computer hardware.
“SolarSPELL’s mission is to provide relevant, localized educational content to resource-constrained locations around the world.” To Learn more about SolarSPELL visit solarspell.org.
