Mobiles for Education Alliance Seeks Presentation Proposals

 

The Mobiles for Education Alliance (mEducation Alliance) invites presentation proposals for the 7th Annual mEducation Symposium, which will be held October 5th-6th in Washington, DC. The symposium serves to share ideas and launch new partnerships to advance the use of technology in the education field, particularly in lower-resource countries.

This year’s symposium theme, “Future-Proofing Technology for Education in International Development,” asks potential presenters to look backwards from the year 2020 and share specific information about the pathways they or other partners followed for gathering the evidence to scale and spread their successful Information and Communications Technology for Education (ICT4E) initiatives. This includes identifying the piloting, research, evidence, technology selection and partnerships to achieve their goals. This year’s subthemes include:

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

The submission deadline for presentation proposals is August 4th, and selected applicants will be informed before August 18th. Click here for the full call for proposals.
