Increasing Women’s Representation in School Leadership: A promising path towards improving learning
SPOTLIGHT

Increasing Women’s Representation in School Leadership: A promising path towards improving learning

Emerging evidence shows a positive association between women school leaders and student performance. Some studies suggest women school leaders are more likely than their male counterparts to adopt effective management practices that may contribute to improved outcomes. However, women remain largely underrepresented in school leadership positions, particularly in low- and middle-income countries. This brief presents emerging insights on the association between women school leaders and education outcomes and draws attention to women’s underrepresentation in school leadership roles. It highlights the need for further research on gender and school leadership to identify policies and practices that can be implemented to increase women’s representation and scale high-quality management practices adopted by women leaders to more schools to improve education outcomes for all children.

Glosario sobre los derechos del niño
Glosario sobre los derechos del niño

AUTHOR(S)
Sharon Detrick

Published: 2000 Innocenti Publications
El Glosario sobre los Derechos del Niño constituye un complemento del Tesauro Internacional sobre los Derechos del Niño. Ambos volúmenes han sido elaborados por el Centro Internacional para el Desarrollo del Niño (CIDN), que forma parte de UNICEF. Su objetivo es proporcionar una guía detallada a la terminología especializada que se utiliza en el ámbito de los derechos del niño y, en particular, en la Convención sobre los Derechos del Niño. Aunque tanto el Glosario como el Tesauro están destinados a servir principalmente de instrumentos funcionales para la gestión de datos a los profesionales de la información, se espera que el Glosario cumpla además la finalidad de fomentar una mejor comprensión de la terminología relativa a los derechos del niño entre el público no especializado.

Children's Rights Glossary
Children's Rights Glossary

Published: 2000 Innocenti Publications
The Children's Rights Glossary is published as a companion volume to the International Children's Rights Thesaurus. It aims to provide a detailed key to the specialized terminology used in children's rights and particularly in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Although both the Glossary and the Thesaurus are intended as information-handling tools for information professionals, it is hoped that the Glossary will also be useful in promoting a better understanding of children's rights terminology amongst a non-specialist audience.

Published: 2000 Innocenti Publications
Ce glossaire des droits des enfants est publié comme volume d'accompagnement au Thésaurus international sur les droits des enfants, rédigé aussi par le Centre international pour le développement de l'enfant de l'UNICEF. Son but est de fournir une explication détaillée de la terminologie spécialisée utilisée dans le secteur des droits des enfants et en particulier dans la Convention relative aux droits de l'enfant. Même si aussi bien le Glossaire que le Thésaurus sont conçus comme des outils de traitement de l'information à l'usage des spécialistes de l'information, il est souhaitable que le Glossaire soit aussi utile pour faciliter une meilleure compréhension de la terminologie concernant les droits des enfants par un public générale.

Responsible Innovation in Technology for Children: Digital technology, play and child well-being

Digital experiences can have significant negative impact on children, exposing them to risks or failing to nurture them adequately. Nevertheless, digital experiences also potentially yield enormous benefits for children, enabling them to learn, to create, to develop friendships, and to build worlds. While global efforts to deepen our understanding of the prevalence and impact of digital risks of harm are burgeoning – a development that is both welcome and necessary – less attention has been paid to understanding and optimizing the benefits that digital technology can provide in supporting children’s rights and their well-being. Benefits here refer not only to the absence of harm, but also to creating additional positive value. How should we recognize the opportunities and benefits of digital technology for children’s well-being? What is the relationship between the design of digital experiences – in particular, play-centred design – and the well-being of children? What guidance and measures can we use to strengthen the design of digital environments to promote positive outcomes for children? And how can we make sure that children’s insights and needs form the foundation of our work in this space? These questions matter for all those who design and promote digital experiences, to keep children safe and happy, and enable positive development and learning. These questions are particularly relevant as the world shifts its attention to emerging digital technologies and experiences, from artificial intelligence (AI) to the metaverse, and seeks to understand their impact on people and society. To begin to tackle these questions, UNICEF and the LEGO Group initiated the Responsible Innovation in Technology for Children (RITEC) project in partnership with the Young and Resilient Research Centre at Western Sydney University; the CREATE Lab at New York University; the Graduate Center, City University of New York; the University of Sheffield; the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child; and the Joan Ganz Cooney Center. The research is funded by the LEGO Foundation. The partnership is an international, multi-stakeholder and cross-sectoral collaboration between organizations that believe the design and development of digital technology should support the rights and well-being of children as a primary objective – and that children should have a prominent voice in making this a reality. This project’s primary objective is to develop, with children from around the world, a framework that maps how the design of children’s digital experiences affects their well-being, and to provide guidance as to how informed design choices can promote positive well-being outcomes.

Resources to Support Marginalized Caregivers of Children with Disabilities: Guidelines for Implementation

Support from caregivers is critical for children’s learning both at home and at school. However, the COVID-19 pandemic and disruption of education systems globally created additional expectations for parents to support their children’s learning at home. This particularly affected the most marginalized children as the crises exacerbated already existing inequalities in education. This document introduces the approach and purpose of a set of resources to support the marginalized caregivers of children with disabilities with inclusive education. It presents lessons learned from proof-of-concept pilots in Armenia and Uzbekistan, followed by step-by-step guidelines on how to adopt and adapt the resources for education ministries and others who want to implement them in their education system.

Reopening with Resilience: Lessons from Remote Learning during COVID-19: Europe and Central Asia

When schools started closing their doors due to COVID-19, countries in Europe and Central Asia quickly provided alternative learning solutions for children to continue learning. More than 90 per cent of countries offered digital solutions to ensure that education activities could continue. However, lack of access to digital devices and a reliable internet connection excluded a significant amount of already marginalized children and threatened to widen the existing learning disparities. This report builds on existing evidence highlighting key lessons learned during the pandemic to promote learning for all during school closure and provides actionable policy recommendations on how to bridge the digital divide and build resilient education systems in Europe and Central Asia.
