About the Project

Tabshoura in a box aims at reaching remote areas with interactive school digital resources defying the internet and the electricity unreliability.

Tabshoura’s team creates from scratch free, interactive, multilingual, digital activities aligned with the school curriculum learning outcomes, supporting students and teachers in vulnerable communities in order to avoid early dropouts.

LAL pedagogical team links generation, hiring freshly graduate students and teaming them up with senior subject matter experts (SME). The SMEs coach the young developers and structure with them the pedagogical units.

Our methodology is based on a discovery approach The students through several activities and tasks discover concepts and build their own knowledge. Feedbacks, hints, auto-evaluation checklists, give them a complete autonomy in learning. 
We also strongly believe in the importance of extra-curricular activities in education. Culture, civic education, arts, Steam approach, soft skills are essential to building a person as a whole. 

LAL’s technical team research and develop new solutions, finding the best learning systems to deliver content. We only use open sources, such as Moodle, WordPress and we lately integrated open source plugins created by a Norwegian company, Joubel; H5P allowed us to create richer online content and improve online learning experiences.

LAL’s tech team also solves the access problem.  Our award-winning access solution, Tabshoura in a box, is a pocket-size server, based on the raspberry pi technology and inspired by Nicolas Martignoni’s Moodlebox. We distribute the boxes to schools and community centers with our content uploaded on a micro SD card. One box hotspots 30 devices simultaneously, both offline and off electricity. 
To deliver our content, we partner with community centers, schools, NGOs, and INGOs. 
We lately signed an accreditation agreement with the Center of Educational Research and Development/ CERD, the official instance of the Ministry of Education in charge of developing the Lebanese curriculum and books. 
Once the pilot and assessment phase are completed, the next step will be to make our content available in Lebanese public and private schools.
