Global Learning XPRIZE and Apps for Education

Harry Longworth, co-founder of the OATSEA Foundation, will speak on "Educational apps for free education" at a meeting of the ACS e-Learning Special Interest Group, Australian National University, in Canberra, 5:00pm 5th August 2015.
Teachervirus.org is the OATSEA Foundation's Open Source approach to addressing the problem of how do we provide high quality free education to those who can't afford to pay for education; and don't have access to the internet, teachers or schools.  It's also our entry into the Global Learning XPRIZE - an international $15 Million dollar competition to meet this challenge.
They are building a community of like minded educators, developers, teachers, parents and students who want to make the world a better place through the power of education.
Harry Longworth is one of the co-founders of the OATSEA Foundation Ltd - an Australian charitable not for profit based in Canberra dedicated to Open Access To Self Education and Assessment (OATSEA).
Harry has a strong background in innovation, technology, projects, startups and international capacity development and is passionate about solving the big problems. He has spent the last 5 years traveling the Asia Pacific region on behalf of the Australian government providing advice and conducting assessments of IT capacity and capability whilst working on a multi-million dollar technology project delivering capacity in PNG.
