We will do a quick overview of the challenges we faced when school were shut down in an area where most families and students don't have adequate internet access. We will then showcase the platform we used to deliver learning to both students with and without internet access. We will also share the work we have done in the summer and the fall to provide this as an alternative low-cost solution to addressing the equity gap in information access.
When school shutdown, many districts were forced to provide a learning solution that wasn't interactive, engaging, nor did it help capture student progress. Schools provided paper packets or thumb drive with worksheets to those students without internet access, which resulted in a different learning experience for those students. Our solution gives students without internet access the same learning opportunities as those with Internet access by providing students with engaging and interactive learning content and individualized student progress monitoring and tracking for teachers.
The way it works is that the Raspberry Pi becomes a hotspot which students connect to, once they are connected they can stream content which is pre-loaded on the Raspberry Pi.
We will review the Kolibri Platform which runs on the Raspberry Pi which is used to deliver offline learning. We will walk participants through running the platform locally on their devices and/or on a Raspberry Pi in less than 10 mins. Participants then will explore different available content channels such as Khan Academy and Phet simulation. We will also share teacher-created content.
