Bodo describes his project to build algorithms that take advantage of peer-to-peer learning and discovery to allow learning, even in settings where people have virtually no knowledge of technology or literacy.
Bodo Hoenen is an EdTech innovator creating autonomous self-schooling opportunities for children in poverty, disaster areas, conflict zones, and areas that restrict open education. Motivated by his young daughter's self-directed learning, Hoenen realized children crave learning and when given the opportunity, will seek out knowledge and skills. He founded Dev4X's Moonshot Education Project 18 months ago, with a vision to create a personalized digital learning platform to revolutionize education for the world's most marginalized children. Hoenen and Dev4x have recently joined the Global Learning XPRIZE (GLXP) in an effort to pilot their learning platform through the $10M grant GLXP's provides for the best education solution.
With his latest project, Hoenen will illustrate how we can leverage the natural teaching moments of communities to create learner-generated algorithms that teach any child, just about anything, no matter where they are born.
