The Oppia team works to create effective, enjoyable online lessons at scale that can reach millions of people. We want every individual, no matter what their personal circumstances, to have access to learning experiences that are not only pedagogically effective, but also fun and engaging. Our focus is on reducing the equity gap in access to education, and we are currently working on providing free and effective basic math and science lessons that can be played on cheap Android devices to learners in underserved communities around the world. Oppia's lessons have already reached over 2,000,000 users, and learners using our basic mathematics curriculum have seen gains of over 50% from pre-test to post-test. You can read some examples of our work in these blog posts ( post 1, post 2).A key differentiator of Oppia is its unique technology platform, which simulates an interactive tutor by adapting each lesson to individual learners’ needs and providing specific, targeted feedback to help them improve. Furthermore, all our lessons are openly licensed and the platform is open source, which enables a diverse group of educators and technologists from around the world to regularly iterate on and improve them.If you’re a creative marketer with experience in social media and a passion for helping underserved children gain access to education, keep reading!Oppia is looking for passionate individuals to join our Digital Marketing team who can work with us to craft our social media marketing strategy and create compelling stories that are worth sharing, in order to advance the cause of universally accessible education for everyone.To get started, please fill in this form https //forms.gle/Mp2V48Rd5EtBXs23A Who We AreThe Oppia Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission to provide high quality education to all. We do this through the creation and maintenance of our free-to-use platform, Oppia (https //www.oppia.org), the coordination of our passionate contributors, and the development of critical partnerships with NGOs in the communities we aim to serve. Where You Fit InMillions of children are not receiving the education they deserve. Of the 61 million children worldwide who cannot attend primary school, 17 million will never step foot into a school if trends continue. In the wake of COVID-19, millions more children are also seeing interruptions in their daily lives, stability, and education - making it even more difficult than before for many students to get the education they need to succeed.Many people don't realize that a large proportion of the world has limited access to education, and that this denies them opportunities in life, through no fault of their own. We seek to amplify this cause and bring awareness to the voices and stories of these learners, and build a community that advocates for and makes active efforts to support equitable access to education for everyone. We also want more learners and parents in these situations to know about the free tools that Oppia provides (such as the offline-playable Oppia Android app with a full interactive basic math curriculum), so that they can make use of them to support their education.We are looking for digital marketing specialists who enjoy helping to define marketing strategy, as well as support the creation and execution of individual stories on our social media and blog. You should be someone who is familiar with digital marketing, passionate about the problems that Oppia is solving, and excited about community engagement. Experience in brand-building is also a plus! While we’d prefer someone who has some experience in these areas, we're happy to work with someone who'd like to learn and develop through this role as well.
