How we work at the Maarifa Initiative

Over the last two years I have been working on The Maarifa Initiative and this summer we are starting up projects in Kampala, Uganda and Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.

The Maarifa Initiative is all about creating a community of students and teachers working to reuse, adapt and translate digital learning resources from existing global resources into local languages.

A short summery of our workflow looks like this:

  • We start by searching and  finding digitale learning resources
  • translate and re-contextualize
  • re-develop and build new content
  • Publish in a new language and context

This video gives an short introduction to the structure and how we work:
