mJangale is a full-featured education solution leveraging mobile technology to improve primary school education in Senegal backed by a strong pedagogical and sustainable model. Each “mobile kit” consists of: 1) a fleet of phones and help desk; 2) engaging mobile apps on basic phones or smartphones that teach literacy and numeracy with local content, give instant feedback, and collect data on pupils’ learning progress; 3) training for teachers to use and contribute to the solution; and 4) reaching out to parents and involve them in the learning of their children. Parts of mJangale have already been piloted in Dakar (in collaboration with an NGO) with great success and enthusiasm from its participants. These kits can be bought by schools, NGOs, international organizations, or via crowdfunding, and the apps will also be sold in the app stores. While initially focused on Senegal, mJangale can be extended to other countries.
