The ICT for Education working group of Educaid.be focuses on the use of ICT instruments, programmes and practices in education and training in developing countries. Following on an international conference on the topic in 2017, Digital, Education and Development. How to be smart about it?, the working group now wants to facilitate the exchange of best practices among Belgian actors during a half-day workshop in Brussels.

The aim of this workshop will be to exchange on innovative education initiatives and tools with a digital component, implemented in a challenging environment with limited resources and high demands.

Nine good practices and tools have been selected, and the workshop will be divided in a short presentation part, with a 5-minute pitch presentation of each of them, followed by a exchanges in small groups, to discuss how these and other tools can be used and improved while striving for inclusion.
