    Overview:
    Education is not limited to the traditional classroom. For many kids around the world who work for their parents' businesses, the street corner is also their business school. The idea behind Project Mobi is to take advantage of the intellectual capital and business know-how of these children and turn it into a way for them to enjoy the benefits of technology in their classrooms.

    parents' businesses, theirthe street corner
    By creating tutorial videos, these kids can transmit their business knowledge base to students in the developed world who do not have that wealth of knowledge. The kids in the developed world do have access to more capital, however, and with the knowledge they gain and the access they have, profits can be generated to payback their peer-teachers with technology.
    Mobile devices such as the iPod Touch are everywhere and their influence will only grow in both business and education. In an effort to bridge the digital divide and connect students from around the globe, Project Mobi will launch in 2010 with the purpose of getting these mobile devices into the hands of students in Mumbai.

    Project Mobi
    Project Mobi is how students exchange knowledge for technology.
    Overview:
    Education is not limited to the traditional classroom. For many kids around the world who work for their parents' businesses, their street corner is also their business school. The idea behind Project Mobi is to take advantage of the intellectual capital and business know-how of these children and turn it into a way for them to enjoy the benefits of technology in their classrooms.
    By creating tutorial videos, these kids can transmit their business knowledge base to students in the developed world who do not have that wealth of knowledge. The kids in the developed world do have access to more capital, however, and with the knowledge they gain and the access they have, profits can be generated to payback their peer-teachers with technology.

In an effort to bridge the digital divide and connect students from around the globe, Project Mobi will launch in 2010 with the purpose of getting these mobile devices into the hands of students in Mumbai.
    How it Works:
    1. My school send a flip video camera to Nikita to use at the center at St. Stanislaus
    2. I coordinate with Nikita and/or any teachers and/or Akanksha workers to create short videos. The videos would essentially be instructional tutorials that your kids make so that our kids can learn about how to run a small business. I know many of the Akanksha students might not know the "business school" vocabulary, but they do understand the ideas (marketing, price setting, how to pick a good location, etc.)
    3. The videos get uploaded to YouTube.
    4. My students watch the videos and begin to plan out a small business idea in groups of 2-3.
    5. Once our plan is set, we get some money (in the form of a micro-loan) from the students at Stanford University who run the Gumball Project
    6. We use that money to buy our supplies, then we pick a couple of weekends and get to work executing our plans.
    7. We pool all of the money we make and purchase as many iPod tocuhes as we can.
    8. We load the iPods up with as many educational apps as we can. I use many of them with my son and with students that I tutor and they are great for helping with the basics of spelling, vocabulary, pronunciation, math skills like adding, subtracting multiplying and dividing, etc)
    9. We ship them to Nikita.
    10. The kids at the Akanksha center use them.
    11. The world becomes a better place.
