Event Description

Discussion question: What role can mobile technology play in assessing learners' progress and attendance monitoring in low-resource settings?  

Despite huge strides being made in access to education, this has not transpired into learning for all. While we would very much like to include a killer fact here on exactly how many children are in school and are not learning, the truth is that nobody is quite sure.

In the upcoming webinar, Sarah Pouezevara (RTI International) and Mike Dawson (Ustad Mobile) will discuss how they are leveraging mobile technology to assess learners’ progress and monitor attendance in low-resource settings. 


Sarah Pouezevara – Sr. eLearning Specialist, RTI International

Topic Using Tangerine(TM) to capture learning (and teaching!) progress in low-resource settings.

Profile Sarah was one of the original designers of the Tangerine data collection system, which is widely used for large-scale early grade reading and math assessments in low-resource contexts.  Over the past 6 years, since its first use in Liberia in 2010, it has evolved to serve many purposes apart from sample-based data collection.

Mike Dawson – CEO Ustad Mobile

Topic Real-time school monitoring (India)


Mike is the CEO and co-founder of Ustad Mobile; a social enterprise that develops low-cost technology  to empower educators.  Mike has over 9 years of experience in education technology for low income area including 7 years in Afghanistan. Mike will present their pilot attendance tracking app currently being implemented in India. The open source tracking application enables automatic real-time recognition of paper records with verification features.
