Knowing traditional models of learning are not scalable, XPRIZE developed the Global Learning competition to show how technology can empower children to autonomously learn basic reading, writing and arithmetic.

We are at a pivotal moment in education, where an alternative, radical approach is necessary. The Global Learning XPRIZE challenged innovators from around the world to develop engaging open-source learning software that leverages the latest technology to create an autonomous learning environment for children living in remote areas of the world. The winning technologies demonstrated the most significant gains in reading, writing and arithmetic.

Although the competition is ending, the world's work is just beginning. The free, accessible software code and data is now a resource for the world to build on, bringing quality learning experiences to children who do not have access to formal education, and supplementing the learning of children who do.

No matter how incredible the technological solution is, scaling and accelerating the path to universal access to quality education will only happen with your help. The proof of concept has worked. It's time for the world to know.

What's next?

Now that we have the data and learning software from the finalist teams, XPRIZE is focused on securing and loading the software onto tablets; localizing the software into different languages; and delivering preloaded hardware and charging stations to remote locations so we can scale this across the world.

    We have hard time make the app work by downloading it from GitHub.com/XPRIZE. Any lessons learned you can share?
