Mobile Learning Week 2017

Co-organized by UNESCO and UNHCR, Mobile Learning Week 2017 was held under the theme ‘Education in emergencies and crises’ from 20 to 24 March in Paris.

The event examined 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

This website contains content shared at Mobile Learning Week and rich descriptions of the 100+ presentations delivered during the conference. As additional follow-up, UNESCO is completing a publication entitled 'Mobile Learning for Refugees' which is expected to be released late 2017. 

The dates for MLW2018 have been set for 26-30 March 2018. Please check this website in the fall of 2017 for details.
