SMILE Amazon Empowering Indigenous Children Through a Mobile Learning Environment

DesignLab

Project information

How can technology be used to improve the world and empower the most vulnerable individuals? SMILE Amazon is a technological solution aimed at providing educational opportunities for indigenous children who are living in remote regions of the Amazon. Through design solutions, SMILE Amazon aims to improve the current version of an existing mobile learning technology, named Stanford Mobile Inquiry-based Learning Environment (SMILE), making it more useful for low literate users whose exposure to technology is low, such as children from underserved communities.
