New Research Project: Technology and Education for the most marginalised Post-COVID-19
In May, I joined #Emmpostcovid19 (Education for the Most Marginalised post-COVID-19) project as a junior researcher. The aim of the project to co-create a set of recommendations for governments on using digital technologies to enhance their education systems post-COVID19. This project is led by the UNESCO Chair in ICT4D, Professor Tim Unwin.
"Members of the UNESCO Chair in ICT4D are involved in an exciting new initiative to develop a Report by September 2020 on practical guidance for governments on using digital technologies to enhance their education systems once the immediate crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has passed (see Summary).
This Report will be short, succinct and practical, and will also include a series of brief Guidance Notes addressing the most important activities that governments need to address to ensure the inclusion of some of the world’s poorest and most marginalised people. The work is being funded by DFID and the World Bank through their EdTech Hub"
