The Analog Blogger: An education source at the center of town

Alfred Sirleaf uses simple and affordable tools to spread information to people in the capital city of Liberia.
I'm inspired by the way a chalkboard provides a place to test things out. This "townhall concept" that has been applied by Alfred offers inspiration around creating various learning touch points that enable students to engage with learning experiences in everyday activities. From games to information, this seems to be a means to share a community approach to education.

I hadn't see that Monocle report so thank you! And I've just learned about Griot so this is a double bonus in the collaborative process!

I love the simple approach too. This builds upon the griot tradition which is another plus. Thanks for sharing.
