The MGS is delighted that one of our current collaborative studentship partners, onebillion, has been shortlisted ( as one of the five finalists for the Global Learning XPRIZE:

The $15 million Global Learning XPRIZE challenges teams from around the world to develop open-source, scalable software that will enable children in developing countries to teach themselves basic reading, writing and arithmetic within 15 months.

Professor Nicola Pitchford from the University of Nottingham who is lead supervisor on the collaborative studentship with onebillion will be attending the awards ceremony of the Global Learning XPRIZE in Los Angeles in May.
