I don’t yet have a Kolibri story, however I am posting here as Kolibri seems a good fit for the experiences I’ve had.
I’ve had several ties with Indonesia through my and my parents lives, myself being from Australia.
Outside the tourist areas, even Bali in 2010 still had emaciating poverty, and I saw how even simple things like business listings on Google Maps or an outdated iPhone running Grab could bring families out of impoverishment.
However many communities don’t have internet access at all, or even postmen to receive the “verify my address” postcard for a google maps business listing. I found this out the hard-way bringing scavenged smartphones with Khan Academy installed to those communities, having had previous enriching success with such offerings in internet-enabled communities.
I’ve been thinking now about bringing more scavenged smartphones or tablets, or say the Raspberry Pi 400 to those areas but with a solution that actually does have offline support, and that has led to Kalibri.
Upon an initial look at Kalibri, I was seeming say a 20 minute youtube video explaining the entire process, however from what I’ve gained from the various landing pages, it seems it is oriented for a teacher-student classroom relationship, rather than autodidactical learning? Does this mean there is a remote teacher, or I should engage a working relationship with the community’s teacher and onboard them with the platform?
My other question, is besides Khan Academy which I know it has, does it have anything for teaching English? In these areas English is the wealth language, if one can speak it, then it means he can engage with tourists, get employed, and can take care of his family.
