This Landscape Review of Technology for Refugee and IDP Education is a joint initiative of Creative Associates International, the All Children Reading Partners (United States Agency for International Development (USAID), World Vision, the Australian Government) Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and the mEducation Alliance. Its purpose is to foster dialogue and action-based learning on policies and practices for leveraging appropriate technology to meet the urgent educational needs of refugees and internally displaced persons. The review looks at systems frameworks, barriers, resources and promising practices for using technology-enhanced education in refugee/IDP settings and supports those who are looking for practical tips and solutions to this complex area.
The Landscape Review compiles the most up-to-date research from over 15 countries that are affected by refugees and IDPs. The research is meant to help policy makers, practitioners, and donors to better understand the evidence related to using EdTech solutions to meet the complex demands of these populations.
The Review is broken into three self-paced online modules filled with practical examples:
