Technology Overview

The technologies we use depend entirely on what works best for our partners and their needs.  Where context-appropriate tools and technologies already exist, they are integrated.  If they do not yet exist, InSTEDD collaborates with the user through an iterative design process to build new and robust tools that can be used and developed locally.  By closely co-developing tools with the user, our solutions are more effective and resilient in the sometimes resource constrained environments where they are used, regardless of differences in language, literacy levels, or type of technology available.
