Bridging the Last Mile: Education Feedback Loops in Nairobi
Wayan Vota of Development Gateway in the U.S. will combine data generated by citizens and governments into an interactive interface that can be easily accessed and used by average citizens in order to improve their communities. They will focus on education in three Nairobi slums, and engage the local community and government. An application interface will be designed using relevant datasets, such as school performance statistics, community reports, and geographic data, and used to build an interface that can be accessed over the internet or distributed in print form or via messages sent to mobile phones. They will conduct local workshops to test their approach.
