Adaptive Path's Mobile Literacy Project approaches mobile phones as a means to overcoming infrastructural challenges. By making data tangible it aims to use QR Codes to break down barriers between interface literate and illiterate phone users and thus opening the mobile phone up to it’s full capacity as a rapid information sharing device.


The video is a great watch – effective use of research driving persona- and scenario-based thinking. A similar concept using QR codes could be used for uploading many of the inspirations being posted on information sharing to mobile phones.
