As schools are closed in many countries during the crisis, many students are forced to stay at home, being unable to continue their education. Digital technologies can help them to continue their education at home, but what about children who do not have a home?
That is why UNICEF has launched a new global learning platform, called “Learning Passport”. This project started off as a partnership between UNICEF, Microsoft, and the University of Cambridge as well as its departments Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Assessment. It is designed to provide education for displaced and refugee children through a digital remote learning platform. Children and young people can continue their education online through a country-specific platform, accessed via their country’s learningpassport.unicef.org page. The platform for each country provides a digitized curriculum with textbooks and a selection of supplemental content, in national languages, that is jointly curated at the country-level, in order to serve the learners’ and educators’ specific needs.
