Learning from Children in the Most Remote Places

Special Issue ・ March 10, 2017

A contingent from the Avenues Tiger Works R&D team recently traveled to Uganda armed with a doc full of research questions formulated in a months-long collaboration with the people of Project Hello World. Our shared challenge required a leap of imagination — can we reach out and work with communities around the world to make high quality learning accessible for all?

This work runs in parallel with the Project Hello World team’s visit to the New York campus in the fall of 2016, where students, faculty, and staff throughout Avenues built a Hello Hub, learning about community-led projects and gaining insight into building something for real-world use that can change lives in remote and marginalized communities.

Initial observations and results from this ongoing research were presented at SXSWedu 2017 in Austin. The team also put together a photo essay to document the research. Click the image below to share in the experience (or download a pdf).
