Key Information

The Unlocking Talent project is a growing, global initiative, made up of an alliance of partners that focuses on putting children and their educational needs first. At its core, the project uses innovative education technology, created by our partner onebillion, to help overcome the education challenges that hold learners back. The software, onecourse, is a comprehensive, modular course for children. Children learn to read, write and become numerate on tablets by working through a carefully structured course made up of thousands of engaging activities, games, and stories. onecourse is designed to be adapted for many different languages and contexts.
