INEE and the USAID Middle East Education Research, Training, and Support (MEERS) program are pleased to invite you to join us for a webinar on technology for education in emergencies data!
Integrating technology effectively into the Education in Emergencies (EiE) sector has enormous potential to improve data availability, quality, and use across the globe; however, the sector faces distinct challenges in introducing and leveraging these new technologies. What principles can help guide EiE actors in selecting contextually-appropriate technologies that aid in data collection, processing, and communication?
Mark Buttweiler (FHI 360), Rafael Contreras Gomez (FHI 360), and Tanya Smith-Sreen (FHI 360) address this question through sharing the results of “Technologies for Data Collection, Processing, and Communication in Education in Emergencies: Mapping Practices and Opportunities in the MENA region and Globally,” a white paper that informs the use of technology in EiE across the data life cycle. Simultaneously, they will present a companion dashboard that supports a detailed exploration of specific technologies, curates a set of tools for immediate adoption, and crowdsources insights on cost and utility.
