What Are ICT4Education Solutions for Crisis Populations?

Amman, Jordan - March 28th - RSVP Now
From the perspective of a service provider, delivering education in active conflict is an entirely different challenge than delivering to incoming refugees in a stable country.

But from the perspective of a child, who may find herself in a situation without trained teachers, or in a country with a native language or curriculum different than her own - or, more likely, in each of these situations at different times - having different education systems for each new context represents a disruption that can set her back years. 

With 50 million people across the globe displaced outside or inside their countries, mobility is a key feature of experience of today’s most vulnerable.  This presents a challenge to education systems, which are typically organized around physical locations.
  • How can we put the individual child’s journey at the center of how we think about continuity of education?  
  • What hardware and infrastructure would that require?  What software solutions already exist?
  • Where can interventions complement formal education systems? If we can, what is required?  What are the risks?
  • Should we even use electronic mediums or are there situations where face-to-face is the only way?
Please RSVP now to join us for the March Technology Salon in Amman to explore the potentials - and the risks - of technology in the context of education in crisis. We will have a lively and informative discussion with noted experts, featuring: Please RSVP now to join in the discussion - RSVP is required for participation and we’ll have refreshments to perk you up, but seating is limited. Once we reach our 35-person capacity there will be a waiting list!

About the Technology Salon

The Technology Salonâ„¢ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:
  • Technology's impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
  • Private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people - and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged. 

It's also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
