The laptops provided by Labdoo will be used in E4D’s pilot center/makerspace in Banjarapalya village, in the outskirts of Bangalore city in India.
The space caters to the local village and surrounding communities as an alternate learning place, where its members use the Internet to find interesting projects from various sources like Instructables and Makezine, and build them using the tools and prototyping equipment available at the makerspace. We are working on such a concept of self motivated learning, where each member can customize education for him/herself and develop skills in a practical way, as opposed to the traditional methods of learning without objective. This is especially important for the Indian rural population as they receive really low quality education, as obtaining better education is beyond their affordability. Banjarapalya is thus the experimentation ground and our first step towards creating a system of high-quality learning in a low-cost ecosystem, leveraging open online material from the internet.

Story


Project DEFY had a humble beginning in 2014, not just metaphorically but in reality. A small room, in a non-descriptive village on the outskirts of Bangalore, having no furniture, no equipment, no books, with plenty of junk, some basic tools. The only hitech items were one personal computer and an Internet connection to do an experiment in education. Soon the rooms were abuzz with boys and girls from the village, who had come there out of sheer inquisitiveness and curiosity which eventually led to learn by doing and making - the experiment was working. The room was getting filled with eager learners and the experiment turned into a project. Project DEFY had to be upgraded with more computers on priority. The founders had already exhausted their personal saving and funds raised through family & friends. Just when hopes were fading, there came a beacon of light in the form of LABDOO – The humanitarian social network made by people around the world providing technology to those in need purely for education.
