About 1Room

1Room is a pilot-stage initiative to design an ultra low-cost, competency-based high school program that can serve the world’s most marginalized learners. 1Room aims to deliver a complete curriculum with as little as a single classroom and as few as 15 learners, for less than 15% of per capita national income per student. We achieve this through personal learning technology and staffing systems that can work offline and off-grid.

Key Responsibilities

  • Develop and adapt from other NGOs hands-on, activity-based learning modules

  • Identify gaps in existing creative commons teaching materials (i.e. Khan Academy Lite Swahili) to prioritize topics for in-house production

  • Develop individualized remedial education activities for at-risk students

  • Develop a detailed modular teacher training curriculum that helps teachers use our technology platform to create individualized lessons and measure student progress

  • Assist in creating a long-term organization system for digital- and paper-based academic content

  • Conduct quality assurance research (i.e. focus groups, etc.) to test curriculum material


  • Excellent oral and written communication

  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team

  • Creative ideas for bringing curriculum to life
