The Digital Literacy Program (DLP) innovation competition is open for innovators developing solutions for opportunities available in the DLP.

This year, the iHUB has been selected by the Kenyan ICT Authority (ICTA), as one of the hubs to identify and select innovators in Kenya who have/can create solutions that will help improve the Digital Literacy Program and enable the Government better interact with schools, teachers, learners and other stakeholders in the DLP program.

In light of this, we have launched a call to identify innovators whose products, services or ideas can further enhance the digital literacy program across the following thematic areas:

  • Creation and sharing of additional content for learners (cloud platforms).
  • Security of devices and content – coming up with ways of ensuring that devices are well secured (tracking mechanism or any other way) and that theft cases are minimized.
  • Inclusivity in Education- Special Needs Education(Learners & Teachers).
  • Artificial intelligence for learners & Teachers

BENEFITS

The overall winner will:

  • Be recognized and showcase innovation at Connected Summit 2020 and other ICTA events
  • Get support from ICTA and its development partners in conjunction with the domicile hub to develop the innovative idea into a product that will be commercialized
