Ed Tech Call for COVID-19 Ideas

The EdTech Hub, mEducation Alliance, and Global Innovation Exchange (GIE) are launching a call for tech-focused ideas to respond to the learning emergency caused by COVID-19 school closures in low- and middle-income countries.

Successful applicants will be invited to EdTech Pitch Days with a global network of potential funders, support in adapting and scaling in response to COVID-19, and connections for onward collaboration and funding.

 

The Alliance is committed to reducing barriers to access appropriate, scalable, and a broad range of low-cost technologies to help improve learning outcomes in formal and non-formal education across all levels, especially in low-resource and developing country contexts.

Evidence

Knowledge is power

The institutional members of the mEducation Alliance work are committed to advancing evidence-based, decision-making for informed ed tech investments. If you are policymaker, practitioner, investor, researcher, or just curious about what is going on in this space, we hope you find the resources on this site of value.
