In today’s rapidly changing and interconnected societies, technologies have great potential to improve teaching and learning, as well as to expand access to quality education. Data provided by the International Telecommunication Union indicate that 95% of the world’s population lives in regions served by at least one basic 2G cellular mobile network. This means that almost everyone who has the equipment to connect can benefit from pedagogical programmes based on technological solutions.
The UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICTs in Education rewards innovative approaches using new technologies to expand education and learning opportunities for all throughout life.
An international jury selects the two laureates each year. During a ceremony at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, each laureate receives a prize of US $25,000, a medal and a diploma.
National Commissions of UNESCO Member States, as well as international NGOs, are invited to select, nominate and submit nominations for the Prize, with a view to encouraging the widest possible diversity of proposed projects.
Deadline for applications: 31 October 2019
