Hi team at OpenIDEO,
Thanks for the feedback. It really helped us ask ourselves new questions, and reassured as on other points.
* We were pleased our gamification approach was validated by your experts.
* We were affirmed of our focus also on psychosocial wellbeing.
* We continue to focus on girls, but also boys - and our central character is a girl who is a good role model to all
* We have further delved into the multi-modal aspects, and will continue to look at ways to make the app more human centred
* We were pleased that the experts thought our team credible. We have managed to add to that by having agreements with local NGOs in Lebanon for our pilot
* We have focussed more on our sustainable model. We will look to repurpose modules in more commercial apps in the future. We have a existing commercial and marketing team who can streamline our efforts for launching this app.
* We sought more opinions on how girls can access an app. The NGOs gave us two different views - one that girls will be able to access the family phone at home for short periods; another that focussing on informal educaiton centres to help access the app might be more efficient. We are therefore looking to try to achieve both, and to ask that question in our pilot. We are switching to being an Android app as this will have greater reach; we will allow short games of 5 minutes to help access at home, everything will be offline for gameplay - these factors should help.
We have clarified our plans for collecting in-app outcomes; and have solidified our plan for the pilot with 2 informal education providers in Lebanon.
We are looking at how we measure impact more effectively.
Nour and I have had such positive feedback from NGOs and people in the industry; which, with the above comments from OpenIDEO have really reinforced our idea and plan

Thanks Erin. I think your points around autonomy in learning and instilling a love of learning are really important for us to focus on
