A project on the move. Mobile like mobile phones, the most widespread technological objects in Africa. Mobile like the tools produced: learning units which can travel and be replicated, modules which can be adapted and used in many different settings.
Mobile A2K supports the building and sharing of resources, encourages the creation of networks among participants, sharing of content, and increased participation. Mobile A2K facilitates the creation of interfaces, new and innovative ways to produce, organize and access knowledge within the field of education.
