There is a diverse landscape of technology for refugee education, with a large and growing number of initiatives and projects. Through the Promising Practices in Refugee Education initiative, Save the Children, UNHCR and Pearson selected 18 promising practices to be documented as full case studies. These include Libraries Without Borders, Teachers College, Columbia University and the Vodafone Foundation, which demonstrated the effective use technology for learning (for separate case studies, click here). The following programmes were selected to be featured within this technology focused case study because they provided further examples of promising practice, but within a pilot stage or at small scale.
