It’s not that the evidence isn’t there in a general sense – clearly just in my lifetime the online connected world has changed nearly everything about the way we live, work, and learn. But nobody predicted the precise way that these changes would happen, and although it is both fun and important to speculate about what the future may bring we need to be clear about the limitations of these speculations. Many people predicted mass adoption of digital learning tools by 2020, nobody predicted this would happen because of a pandemic.
The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
