8512 is a Most Powerful Number

I recently attended Chicago Ideas Week and there was a presentation given by Toni Maraviglia, an educator who has lived in Kenya (East Africa) for over seven years. She was teaching in rural villages and observed that many students needed additional tutoring help through questions and answers to specific subjects. She began to explore how best to deliver this model and further observed that all families had basic cell phones and that this platform could be a gateway for students to receive tutoring help.
