The aim of this webinar is to bring together stakeholders from different backgrounds, including practitioners, researchers, and policy makers from the fields of education and ICT in conflict and crisis settings. During the webinar, the panelists will discuss promising approaches, challenges, and lessons learnt regarding the use of ICT for education for refugees and IDPs. The final objective is to stimulate further exchange, identify ways forward, and improve existing practices to reach a larger number of children, youth, and teachers with regard to education and ICT in situations of forced displacement.

Some of the key questions for discussion will be: How can technology improve access to inclusive, equitable, and quality education in sustainable ways in the context of forced displacement? How can we best measure its impact in these settings? What are the benefits and challenges of ICT supported education interventions in refugee and IDP settings? Which aspects have to be considered when using ICT for education particularly in refugee and IDP settings (e.g. conflict sensitivity, inclusiveness, feasibility and sustainability of the intervention)?
