About the Organisation

In the summer of 2012, our co-founder Jamie Alexandre was interning at Khan Academy when he and a fellow intern had the idea to bring Khan Academy offline using a low-cost Raspberry Pi. After returning to San Diego, Jamie and a dedicated group of student volunteers brought this idea to life. KA Lite was officially launched in December of 2012, sparking an enthusiastic global response that led to a flood of requests for support, features, and partnerships. Since officially incorporating as a non-profit organization in April of 2013, Learning Equality now has over 20 full-time employees who continue to work together towards a common mission.

The "online learning revolution" has generated excitement about the potential for broad, free access to educational resources. One of the greatest barriers is that an estimated 4.5 billion people still lack Internet access. Countries with the least Internet access are the same countries with the least access to quality education in general, including fewer qualified teachers per student and fewer educational materials. Although Internet access will continue to spread over the next few decades, we believe that simply waiting for improved internet access will leave generations of learners behind, and we're not willing to wait and watch that happen. We have dedicated ourselves to building solutions for distributing and hosting open educational resources via low-bandwidth and offline channels, taking advantage of existing infrastructure or low-cost and low-power hardware solutions.

Duties and Responsibilities

In this role, you will be tasked with:

  • Developing a methodology and submitting an inception plan

  • Engaging with relevant interested parties for the project (including the ILO and its social partners), UNICEF, refugee-led organizations, to inform the evaluation of the content and further align the content to the project needs

  • Assessing the Kolibri Library’s content for suitability and relevance, and provide guidance to LE on additional content to be included for use in the programme

  • Conducting a mapping for Ugandan that matches digital content resources to the Ministry of Education curriculum using the Kolibri Studio curricular tool

  • Developing a report of the mapping process, outlining the steps required, individuals and institutions engaged, and any obstacles that occurred

  • By the end of this project, you will have shared:

  • Inception report detailing the planned methodology

  • Progress report detailing engagements with various actors through the program, and suggestions for future engagement

  • Final assessment report on the added content’s suitability and relevance

  • Sets of aligned channel(s) on Kolibri Studio for use in this programme

Qualifications and Competencies

This position might be for you if...

  • You have instructional design experience as a teacher, educational content creator, curriculum designer, etc. You know how to read curriculum standards, understand what goes into a lesson plan, and have a good knowledge of all the pedagogical methods that teachers might be likely to use with digital materials.

  • You care about open educational resources. You have experience working with open educational resources and understand the work that needs to be done to create assessments, and re-organize a collection of diverse resources so that they are as easy for teachers to use as a textbook. You will be working with openly available resources in English from the Kolibri Library.

  • You care about inter-sectoral issues. Your work will cover a range of issues related to using education for technology, including but not limited to community-based design, considerations for effective edtech integration, and ensuring inclusive and safe learning environments for displaced learners.

  • You’re familiar with the Kolibri Learning Platform and/or Kolibri Studio. You will be using the Kolibri Studio curricular tool to map the open resources to the national curriculum, so familiarity with the platform and how it can be used in blended learning environments with the Kolibri Learning Platform is beneficial.

  • You’re familiar working with UN agencies. This project includes working with ILO, UNICEF and UNHCR so experience working with them previously is an added advantage.

  • You have supported learning for underserved communities. This project specifically supports refugee and host-community learners, so understanding the complexities of teaching and learning for these students is beneficial.

  • You have expertise teaching with edtech. Experience with STEM and job-market ready skills is a plus.
