Innocenti Research Report Unlocking Learning: The implementation and effectiveness of digital learning for Syrian refugees in Lebanon AUTHOR(S) Thomas Dreesen; Akito Kamei; Despina Karamperidou; Sara Abou Fakher; Lama Marji; Javier Santiago Ortiz Correa Published: 2021 Innocenti Research Report Digital learning has the potential to offer interactive and personalized learning for children, in and out of school, including the most marginalized. However, depending on programme design, delivery, and use, digital learning can also exacerbate learning inequalities. This report presents tangible findings on the implementation and use of digital learning to improve outcomes for marginalized children in Lebanon. This report focuses on the UNICEF-Akelius Foundation Partnership and its implementation of a digital course used on tablets and mobile phones for language learning of Syrian refugees in Lebanon. The report provides findings across three areas: First, the report investigates the digital course’s use in a blended learning environment where it was used on tablets by students as part of traditional face-to-face classroom instruction with teachers. Second, the analysis examines the transition to remote learning where the course was used on devices owned by the household, supported by teachers remotely. Third, the report estimates the effectiveness of the use of the digital course during this period of remote learning from August–November 2020 showing positive results for language and art competencies. + - Cite this publication | No. of pages: 33 | Thematic area: Education | Tags: education, internet, lebanon, non-formal education, online learning, refugee children, remote learning, rights of refugee children, syrian arab republic × COPY BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATION Thomas Dreesen; Akito Kamei; Despina Karamperidou; Sara Abou Fakher; Lama Marji; Javier Santiago Ortiz Correa 2021 Unlocking Learning: The implementation and effectiveness of digital learning for Syrian refugees in Lebanon. , pp. 33.
