The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), together with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), is currently seeking applications for its Mobile Learning Week 2017, to be held under the theme ‘Education in emergencies and crises’ from 20 to 24 March in Paris.

Objectives

The program will expand international understandings of how new and affordable technologies can help:

  • Strengthen inclusion in education
  • Preserve the continuity of learning in conflict and disaster contexts
  • Open and enrich learning opportunities for refugees and other displaced people
  • Facilitate the integration of learners in new schools and communities
  • Catalyze innovation in the education sector and improve the impact of humanitarian interventions

Program Details

UNESCO is currently accepting two types of proposals for Mobile Learning Week 2017: workshop proposals and symposium proposals.

Symposium

  • The two-day Symposium is the core of Mobile Learning Week. It will convene government representatives, education specialists, mobile learning experts, project managers, researchers and industry partners to share strategies to expand access to education and improve learning through the use of information and communication technologies (ICT).
  • The Symposium will feature plenary addresses from experts working at the intersection of technology and education and host nearly 100 breakout sessions related to the ‘Education in emergencies and crises’ theme of overarching Mobile Learning Week event.
  • Overall, the Symposium will seek to identify innovations that leverage mobile technology to improve the learning opportunities for vulnerable children and adults, especially those who have been displaced, in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda.

Workshop

  • The workshops will allow participants to take part in demonstrations of innovative mobile learning content, technology, research and projects. The workshops will explain how technology can be leveraged to open and expand learning opportunities, especially for displaced learners and those in emergency and crisis situations.
  • Collectively, the workshops provide a platform for mobile learning practitioners and other education stakeholders to exchange experiences and share knowledge related to the ‘Education in emergencies and crises’ theme of Mobile Learning Week 2017.
  • The event is expected to feature approximately 20 workshops which will be held in medium-sized rooms to encourage interactivity and discussion.
