Dr Kenneth Y T Lim was invited to attend the 7th Annual Symposium of the Mobiles for Education Alliance, held in Washington DC on the 5th-6th October 2017 to launch a book by him, co-author Dr John Comings of the University of Massachusetts Amherst and Dr Lim’s reseach team – Yuen Ming De, Ahmed Hilmy, Richard Lee, Derek Chua and Song Bing Heng.

The guidebook titled “A Guide to Developing Digital Games for Early Grade Literacy for Developing Countries“ is commissioned by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and non-governmental organisations from the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

It focuses on developing literacy in early childhood, with a special emphasis on helping curriculum designers and app developers meet the needs of young children in the developing world with key principles and case studies.
