The Global Learning XPRIZE (http://learning.xprize.org) is a $15 million competition launched by the XPRIZE Foundation to create tablet-based Android software that will teach a child to read, write, and perform arithmetic fully autonomously and without the aid of a teacher. This will help bring literacy to over 250 million children.

In this presentation, Jono Bacon, Senior Director of Community at XPRIZE will talk about the competition and how Android developers can join an Open Source community to help make this effort as successful as possible. Bacon will discuss the prize, the technology, the community, and more.
