Spotlight on Organisations

There are exciting developments in AI products for education in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). Some products are still in development while others are being piloted and some have already been deployed. We will be using this page to highlight some of the work that is being done and to explore how we can share expertise, practical ideas and building collaboratively to help shape the development of AI use in education in LMICs.
