I get excited about design when great research and collaboration intersect in "design jams" (personal communication, G. Siemens, October 2014) that hatch great ideas that are developed into elegant designs that improve lives by making a sustainable impact. I am studying the field of learning, design, and technology. My interests include adult learning theory, systems theory, instructional design, quantitative and qualitative research, and higher education.
This is a wonderful project! Hoda Mroue brings up the important issue of program assessment, which you address. Since I was unfamiliar with program assessment strategies for the MECPU ICT initiative, I dug up a WHO/UNICEF evaluation framework document, Care for Child Development. Is this what you are using as the project’s evaluation/implementation guide?

Last, here's a link to a video on Farmers for Lifelong Learning, an ICT mobile learning project from Commonwealth of Learning that seems to be getting good results: http://vimeo.com/10392040
