The mEducation Alliance
DATE: 
Oct 20, 2014 (09:00am) to Oct 21, 2014 (05:00pm)

During this year’s mEducation Alliance Networking Fair, selected presenters will have the opportunity to showcase their project(s), discuss topics and trends in the field and environments in which they work, share challenges in a safe setting, brainstorm with a group of technical experts, identify potential partners, and develop concrete plans of action. Presenters should be prepared to discuss their project at length in intensive, small-group working sessions organized to identify project collaborators and areas of possible partnership (e.g., shared interest, financial, technical platform, technical support, etc.).

The overall goal of the mEducation Alliance Networking Fair is for participants to meet potential collaborators and partners with whom they can significantly strengthen and scale promising mEducation opportunities, projects, and initiatives.   Participants will benefit from a unique environment to engage with their counterparts, mEducation Alliance members, and other leading technical experts and thought leaders, among other participants. Whether discussing mobile-based interventions for improving literacy and numeracy, strengthening youth and workforce activities, and/or scaling mEducation interventions for marginalized and/or hard-to-reach learners, each session will explore ways to improve outcomes and impact of mobile-based education interventions through informed project-building strategies and collaboration.

The aim of militants such as Boko Haram, whose very name means "Western education is a sin," is to sew hatred and enmity between Muslim and Christian communities, which have co-existed largely peacefully for generations. Education, in particular the education of women, is a threat to Boko Haram's goals. That is why the group carried out this appalling act.
