M-Ubuntu uses inexpensive, low-threshold mobile phone technologies to empower teachers to address Africa’s literacy crisis.

SDC10400

M-Ubuntu applies the Zulu concept of Ubuntu - best translated as "I am because we are." to this challenge. At the heart of the project are several teams of reform- minded principals, teachers, volunteers and their enthusiastic learners.

Developed with and for students and fellow teachers, M-Ubuntu is connecting South African teachers with m- literacy coaches in the United States, England, Sweden and Italy to help them open new vistas to learners on the wrong side of the literacy and digital divide.

Through M-Ubuntu teachers are using recycled smart phones to bring the power of handheld computing to their classrooms. Our focus is on project-based learning, access to the best in South African and global literature, and the development of critical reading, writing and thinking skills.
