MILLEE: Mobile and Immersive Learning for Literacy in Emerging Economies

Research areas

Learning Sciences and Technologies

Cell phone applications that enable children in the villages and slums in the developing world to acquire language and literacy in immersive, game-like environments. These applications target localized language learning needs and aim to make literacy resources more accessible to underprivileged children, at times and places that are more convenient than schools. Our design methodology is informed by best practices in commercial language learning packages and the traditional village games that children in the developing world play.
