Currently 130 million children across the world do not go to school. In many developing counties those that do attend school often leave functionally illiterate. Many teachers on sub-Sahara Africa are dying of HIV/AIDS, and in the worst cases more teachers are dying than are being trained and recruited. UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair launched the Imfundo project in April 2000 and gave the team six months to find ways to support the international quest for universal primary education by 2015 using educational technology. The decision was taken to focus on teacher education as the most effective way to improve both access to education and the quality of that education. This paper describes the project's findings to date and describes one of the pilot projects.
