UNESCO-Pearson Initiative for Literacy Update
Further case studies launched at Mobile Learning Week
The UNESCO-Pearson Initiative for Literacy: Improved Livelihoods in a Digital World was launched in 2016 as a research and advocacy partnership for digital solutions to advance inclusion within the context of lifelong learning and the Sustainable Development Goals. Today, at Mobile Learning Week, the third batch of case studies from the Initiative will be launched, featuring stories from MOPA, Hello Hope, Farmer Training App and ABALOB. A further two case studies to be released later this month.
The UNESCO-Pearson partnership aims to spread awareness of current digital solutions and spark further innovation to help low-skilled and low-literate youth and adults participate more effectively in the digital economy and knowledge society and, in the process, develop their skills and literacy. Through key learnings from a landscape review of digital inclusion, a collection of case studies and a set of guidelines, the Initiative aims to inform the work of digital solution providers, development partners and governments that strive for skills and literacy development as part of the global sustainable development agenda.
