  • My childrens new after school care environment
  • Learning about Living is a project that runs in Nigeria, it was co-created in 2007, for which we led the process and has now reached above 120,000 young people with combined eLearning and mobile strategies, 120 teachers, in 5 states and a number of teacher training colleges, My pet peeve that folk hearing that we were designers assumed we had chosen the colours on the cd cover, and i always said no, we design the learning experience, the usability the logistics of the useage, the needs of all the relevant actors, its the whole process, So that got me to ask the question what is actually our role as a designer and is it perhaps that we get the right people together, do we perhaps design the solution network in our attempts to think holistically about all the linsk in the chain of the solution
