ICT and education in crisis situations.
While working in Tanzania I have realised how a simple mobile phone can support education in rural and isolated communities,so I know ICT can make a difference-what about other marginalised learners?
Can Technology Make a Difference for Education in Conflict and Crisis?
The use of information and communication technology (ICT) has the potential to support, enhance, and enable education for the most marginalized learners in conflict and crisis settings. A recently released Landscape Review fills knowledge gaps about the use of mobile technology in education in emergencies, lessons learned and opportunities.
The full report is also complemented by three self-paced online learning modules on ICT4E with refugees. The learning modules can be downloaded here. The review and learning modules identify major trends, patterns, knowledge gaps and lessons learned about the use of mobile technologies in crisis and conflict settings and synthesizes key themes and considerations for practitioners and policy makers in this field. The online modules also emphasize practical examples.
