Participate in SolarSPELL’s Arabic Curate-A-Thon Event, March 26

Do you speak Arabic? Are you ready to make a global impact? The ASU-SolarSPELL offline digital library initiative is hosting a one-day Content-Curate-a-thon, and WE need YOUR help!

SolarSPELL is a global educational initiative that combines curated digital libraries, solar-powered, offline technology, and the training to build information literacy and internet-ready skills. We are developing an Arabic-language offline digital library, to be piloted this June in schools in Northeast Syria.

We’re looking for Arabic-speaking individuals to help us in downloading and tagging content to be added to the digital library at our curate-a-thon! 

With your help, students and teachers in Northeast Syria — who have previously lacked access to textbooks and educational resources — will be able to search, find and use content on the SolarSPELL library to teach and learn, even in the most challenging conditions.
