HundrED Academy Reviews
This is an incredible idea that can be adopted in many countries in rural areas where there is no connectivity. It opens a wide range of opportunities for children around the world. Bravo!
Geographic location, SES, infrastructure, etc. should not limit access to and use of digital learning tools in education spaces. Peddle iLab bridges the tech equity gap in the most clever of ways!
