Description: The goal of this paper is two-fold: (1) to compile and review illuminating case studies of technology- supported interventions to deliver education services that promote equitable access to children and youth in environments affected by crisis and/or conflict; and (2) to provide recommendations for the design and implementation of technology-supported education interventions. The intended audience is education program planners in developing countries, particularly those affected by conflict or crisis.
Through a country case study approach, this report examines three types of educational technology programs, specifically:
– Mobile phone-based delivery of educational content for improving student learning, aimed at
both students and teachers;
– Internet-enabled computer labs supporting K-12 education and youth employment-focused
– Interactive Radio Instruction (IRI) in primary education.
In addition, the report provides a discussion of certain emerging educational technologies (e.g. tablets).
