This blog was blog was previously published on the KIX website.
The blog is part of a two-part series that focuses on emerging findings from KIX global grant projects and how they are engaging education systems and actors.
The past year has marked a period of disruption to education never seen before on a global scale, rising from 258 million children out of school to a staggering 1.6 billion. Education technology, or ‘EdTech’, has been widely thrown to the forefront as a potential means to stem the recent decline in progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 4.
Within War Child Holland, attention turned to Can’t Wait to Learn, a tablet-based gamified learning program and the innovation at the heart of our partnership with the Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX).
Through the KIX-funded project, Bridges to impact through innovative EdTech: Forging links between policy, research and practice, War Child Holland is blending experimental, implementation, participatory and policy research to generate knowledge and evidence on how to adapt and scale up EdTech programs in countries affected by conflict.
