Improving English Education Among Low Income Children Via Cellphones (invited proposal to Pearson Foundation)

Optional

One of the very first NSF-funded IT-4D projects was an ITR (very large nsf grant) out of UC Berkeley, where I was a PI/faculty at the time. This is optional reading, but an interesting perspective on the CS issues that folks thought were important almost a decade ago. (ICT4B-nsf.pdf)
