Thank you so much for your feedback on your design - we really appreciate it and would love to hear your ideas. Where are you based? Would you have any experience from your context that may help in our designs?

We currently have a bus pilot in the Bekaa Valley region of Lebanon that has been implemented for 6 months. This bus has an indoor area and an external awning/tent that is used for lessons. One class at a time accesses the bus and is divided into two groups. In the tent they have a purposeful play session focussed on Psycho-social support, and on the bus they use the tablets to apply their curriculum learning from that week.

A challenge we have had is the extremes of weather in Lebanon, from very cold winters to very hot summers. This is something that we are considering in the design of this new bus programme and in particular the tent will be changing as it is not applicable all year round.

In terms of the open field - the weather is also an issue here. We love to use the space around bus however for using the tablets we have to consider the sun's glare on the screen and overheating. We are currently looking into having a movable tent structure to continue classes when the weather permits - but in the shade.

Thank you so much,


Thanks Jess - your points are so helpful. From your experience in Colombia how have you seen technology implemented in classroom pedagogy effectively? We'd love to refine this project with your learnings in-country?

Thanks so much! We hope it can continue to reach lots of children!
