Event description

Description

The Mobiles for Education Alliance (mEducation Alliance) will host the 7th Annual mEducation Alliance Symposium on October 5th and 6th, 2017, to share ideas and launch new partnerships to advance mobile technology in the education field (see here for last year’s highlights). The Symposium will follow a first-time Education “track” at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Annual Grand Challenges (Gates GC) Meeting, also being held in Washington, DC, October 1-4, 2017, and just before the Symposium. Please note these are invite only events.

The mEducation Alliance Steering Committee (click here to visit the Steering Committee page) is taking a novel approach for the guiding theme and format for this year’s Symposium, to "future-proof" ICT4E technologies. The theme demonstrates the power of the Symposium as a venue for discussing pathways to spreading and scaling innovations and the importance of gathering evidence of impact and for highlighting the essential role of policymakers in adopting ICT4E initiatives and in spreading and scaling the most impactful of these innovations. The sub-themes framing this year’s sessions will include:

  • Literacy (including assessment, local language materials, etc.)
  • Girls’ Education
  • Disability
  • Nonformal Education/Lifelong Learning
  • Monitoring and Evaluation/Research

The 7th Annual Symposium is a valuable opportunity to connect with leading donor organizations, private sector, NGOs, ICT4E researchers, innovators, and policymakers engaged in the field.
