2nd Annual mEducation Alliance International Symposium

2nd Annual mEducation Alliance International Symposium
2012: Partnering for Scale & Impact

5-7 September 2012
Washington, DC

sponsored by the mEducation Alliance

For this year’s mEducation Alliance International Symposium, we want to highlight your experiences and insights on partnership.  What does a successful partnership mean for your work?  What are the challenges and opportunities evident in partnerships designed to improve learning outcomes through the use of mobile technologies? What kinds of additional or expanded partnerships could your work
benefit from, and what could the mEducation Alliance do to support this?

Under the broad theme of partnerships, we’ll be looking for presentation and open session proposals involving the following themes:

  • Public and Private Sector Partnership Engagement
  • Mobiles for Reading
  • Mobiles for Inclusive Education and Assistive Technology
  • Mobiles for Education System Strengthening
  • Mobiles for Youth and Workforce Development  
  • Mobiles for Education in Crisis and Conflict Settings

The Mobiles for Education (mEducation) Alliance is an international collaborative
effort between bilateral and multilateral donors, NGOs, foundations, private sector
partners, academic researchers, and implementing organizations. Our collective
agenda is to explore cutting‐edge intersections between mobile technologies,
education and development, to reduce duplicative efforts, and promote collective
knowledge‐sharing.  The increasing ubiquity of mobile phones and coverage and the
current and possible utilization of other mobile devices, including e‐Readers, tablet
computers, flash memory, micro/ “pico” projectors, and audio/visual devices among
other technologies, provide valuable opportunities for supporting quality education
impact in developing countries.

Please note that participation in this event is invitation only.  For more information, and to download the Call for Proposals, please visit the mEducation Alliance web site.
