This is a great problem to think about because it affects so many more people in the world.

The problem with tethering cell phones to get access is the slow connection Mam is experiencing. The only suggestion I have regarding that is to check different providers for the fastest possible data speeds you can find. I have no idea what Cambodia has to offer in that regard.

The other option is to use an offline browser for most of your pre-thought-out curriculum. So, for instance, if you have the computer in a location which has broadband, set the cache amount on your browser really high, or get a tool for offline browsing, and then browse around the web using your curriculum as a map on what to do and where to go. Then, when you take the computer into remote locations, the images, etc which usually take the longest time to load would come from your computer rather than transfer over the wire. Unfortunately, some "web 2.0" sites would work only sporadically using this method because of how they do things on those sites, but it still might significantly speed up the usage as a whole.

I'll be thinking of any other methods that might work, but those are the best things I can come up with off the top of my head at the moment.

I hope it's helpful.
