Learning has been disrupted for millions of students. Research shows student educational development & performance is significantly impacted by missing 3 days of school per month. Main source of educational content is from local textbooks in underserved communities. It’s challenging & time-consuming to find/use reputable locally-relevant digital resources, given need to search on unreliable internet connections, across multiple web platforms & content providers. Our software transforms $20 KaiOS mobile phones into application & content server CPE, to create autonomous affordable, secure, & resilient mobile personal/community networks that operate online or offline; turning street-level retailers into mass-market smart community hotspots.
