Lumen Lab students in Mtito Andei, Eastern Kenya


Lumen's Digital Literacy Program is a project-based approach to computer learning. Our curriculum challenges students to think about a local issue in their community using a six-step problem solving framework:

As part of this process, students enrolled in Lumen's program use mobile surveys to collect anonymous data sets from their community. This data becomes the foundation of how they think through a problem, and derive a logical solution. 

For each step in the problem-solving process, students are taught to use the computer as a tool to help them analyze the data, think through an issue, and communicate a solution.

In addition, students are also taken through the following topics related to data and research:

  • Survey methodology
  • Quantitative v. Qualitative Data
  • Primary v. Secondary Data
  • Binary Data

 Basic computer skills covered during the course include: 

  • Introduction to computers
  • Word Processing 
  • Spreadsheet Processing
  • Data Entry and Analysis
  • Information Search 
  • Presentation Programs
