EducALL: Llamadas para educar / EducALL: Calls to educate

place Colombia

We use dumbphones to break down education barriers, empower rural children and create a new future.

The digital and information gap is a cause of poverty, the internet and smartphones are not a viable solution in many poor countries and a post-pandemic economy. But through #CallsToEducate we can solve this problem in the world. EducALL is like having spotify + Wikipedia + Moodle/Google Classroom + Youtube recommendation algorithm in dumbphones.

No one loves what he does not know, if a child has not been delighted with a poem, a song or a story that will blow his mind, he cannot imagine being a musical poet or the next giant of humanity.

About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Because no one loves what they don't know. With the pandemic, the digital and information divides increased. Many people do not have access to knowledge because they do not have access to the internet or devices, but they do have access to 2g telephone networks.
EducALL is the cost effective solution to close the information gap in the world.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

The child makes a phone call through which he or she can
* Listen to pre-recorded classes, podcasts, audio books, music
* Voice consultations on wikipedia.
* Translations in their language to English.
* Have conference rooms with your teacher.
* Send assignments through voice notes.
* Playback controls
* Personalized content
* Learning routes
* Gamification
