Bridging the digital divide in education with free software and hardware

Sripath Roy Koganti is the General Secretary of Swecha AP, from Andhra Pradesh, India. Swecha’s motto is “Technology for Society,” and they use a free software development model.

In this talk, Sripath discusses how computers, tablets, and mobile phones open a vast world of knowledge to students everywhere – and how it is critical to make sure that ALL students, including underprivileged students in underfunded schools, have access to these precious resources. He also introduces the BalaSwecha project, which applies the power of free software, free hardware designs, and freely licensed educational materials to bridge the digital divide.
