It's Learnable LLC
Our organization is dedicated to addressing the digital divide in education by developing affordable, user-friendly ed-tech solutions. We understand the barriers faced by teachers and schools, such as expensive hardware, rigid content, and limited tech-savviness. Through comprehensive training, we empower teachers to enhance their digital literacy skills and integrate technology effectively. While we prioritize reaching underserved rural communities, we also cater to all demographics and age groups, including parents, teachers, and K-12 learners. By expanding our knowledge base and offering direct-to-consumer access, our goal is to ensure equitable access to educational technology, enhance teaching practices, and bridge the digital divide in education.
The levels of the digital divide in education inhibit teachers progress at 3 levels, namely digital access, digital participation and digital literacy.
Most ed-tech solutions require either expensive hardware, expensive licenses, or boast learning content which is rigid and not adaptable to the needs of the teacher. Furthermore, the technologies can often be complex and the teacher may not have sufficient tech-savviness to leave their teaching to learn how to use them.
Due to poor infrastructure, lack of electricity and the fact that many remote areas are still beyond the reach of fast internet, rural communities in developing countries are even more disadvantaged. Low incomes and high levels of illiteracy are additional barriers to possible adoption of ICTs.
Amidst these challenges, we've been exploring how artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to bridge the digital divide and empower educators and their learners. AI can be viewed as a tool that enables the provision of sophisticated services in a user-friendly manner. In the realm of education, it's a tool we are using to organize content, develop tailored assessments, and simplify explanations of complex subjects. By leveraging AI-powered solutions, teachers can streamline their tasks, enhance their instructional materials, and adapt their teaching methods to cater to diverse student needs; while students have the freedom and liberty to access the platform at any given time.
