Activating new partnerships for quality education
Unite for Quality Education seeks to involve all partners who believe that there is no success in education without the active involvement of teachers.
This includes elements of the burgeoning education technology business sector, which are invited to engage directly in working with teachers advocating for the development and deployment of tools that strengthen teaching and learning.
The impetus for this new engagement springs directly from the Policy Paper on Education approved at the 6th EI World Congress in Cape Town. Section VII notes that
“New information and communications technologies (ICT) provide exciting possibilities to enhance the quality of education” and that “These tools provide a rich and powerful resource for teachers to assist them with the teaching and learning processes…
“Moreover, technology should be harnessed as a tool for improving personal and professional development through the evolution of the relations between students themselves and between students and teachers and other education employees.”
As a first step in this direction, Education International has announced a partnership with Intel. Read the full story on the EI website.
