Exploring the Potential of Technology to Deliver Education & Skills to Syrian Refugee Youth (February 2016)
In 2015, Syrian refugee youth in Jordan had little or no access to secondary and post-secondary education. Theirworld argued that ensuring they have the opportunity to reach their full potential must be a more urgent focus of investment and innovation.
Theirworld – Report: Education For Syrian Youth And Children In Jordan (September 2015)
One of a series of reports by Theirworld, in conjunction with A World at School and the Global Business Coalition for Education that were written after consultation with the governments of Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon.
They outlined the opportunities to scale up the education response efforts and drive more and better financing and coordination to reach over one million refugee children and young people in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
This report looked at the issue of delivering education to Syrian refugee youth in Jordan – and particularly examined the role technology could play in bridging the skills gap and providing young people with new ways to access learning and rebuild their futures and communities.
The findings of this report demonstrated the growing interest of stakeholders in investing in the untapped potential of technology to accelerate access to education for refugees.
