Americas, Events, News, July 3 2018

mEducation Alliance LogoWASHINGTON, DC, USA: The Mobiles for Education Alliance (mEducation Alliance) will host the 8th Annual mEducation Alliance Symposium from November 6–8, 2018 to share ideas and launch new partnerships that advance the use of technology, particularly in lower resource countries/context, in the education field. They invite your presentation submission and your assistance in helping disseminate the call for presentation proposals.

The call for presentation proposals describes this year’s Symposium theme, ‘Using Technology to Scale Support for Teachers and Community Educators in Low-Resource Environments.’ The focus this year is the central role of the teacher and community educator, and how technology can provide greater support for their professional development, motivation, networking, and delivery of instruction in traditional and non-traditional educational settings.

Sub-themes of this year’s Symposium include:

  • In and Out-of-School Classroom Instruction

  • Teacher Professional Development

  • Supporting Education “Paraprofessionals” (including those in non-traditional, community settings)

  • Coaching and Mentoring

  • Delivering Instruction in Crisis and Conflict Settings

  • Supporting Learners with Disabilities

  • Real-time Classroom/Community Data Collection/Monitoring

  • Establishing/Building Digital Communities to Support Educators

Last year there were over 150 presentations delivered by presenters from 33 countries. The Alliance also developed a report highlighting our favorite projects from among the presentations last year.

You can submit your presentation proposal anytime before July 27. Applications will be reviewed and selected on a rolling basis. All presenters will be notified before August 18 if they have been selected. For additional information about this year’s Symposium or the call for proposals please contact 2018medusymp@gmail.com.
