We talk about the "online learning revolution", with the idea that we can finally achieve the dream of universal education, where anyone can learn anything they want. Unfortunately, to quote William Gibson, "the future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed". The reality is that a full half of the world's population still isn't on the internet, and hence isn't benefiting from these new opportunities. And the same places with limited Internet access are home to many of the hundreds of millions of children either out of school or in school but not even learning the basics, which means we're leaving generations of learners even further behind.
Learning Equality is committed to enabling every person in the world to realize their right to a quality education. We support the creation, adaptation and distribution of open educational resources, and create supportive tools for innovative pedagogy for low-resource and offline contexts, taking advantage of existing infrastructure or low-cost and low-power hardware solutions. We work towards this mission through a combination of the technology we create and the support we provide to our on-the-ground education partners around the world. Everything we create is open-source and made freely available for all to use, which is how we’ve been able to reach millions of learners around the world, in over 200 countries and territories, over the past 5 years.
