Nice piece! I think in Tanzania we are heading there. The www.myelimu.com project has so far brought student closer than ever before. Not only that but it will also serve as the platform to find local content for students here.
Referring to one article you wrote some time back, I quote " The best technology is the one you already have, know how to use, and can afford". With that, it's about time we embrace mobile technology in solving educational challenges.
Thank you for great article!
