Mobile Learning Week is UNESCO’s flagship ICT in education conference held annually at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. The event convenes experts from around the world to share how affordable and powerful mobile technology – from basic handsets to the newest tablet computers – can accelerate learning for all, particularly people living in disadvantaged communities. Each year the event has a specific theme to focus discussions.
The conference is composed of numerous tracks, typically including workshops, a symposium, a high-level policy forum and a research seminar. These tracks engage a wide range of participants, including policy-makers, project managers, educators, researchers, and representatives of NGOs, international organizations and private companies.
In 2017, Mobile Learning Week 2017 will be co-organized by UNESCO and UNHCR under the theme ‘Education in emergencies and crises’ from 20 to 24 March in Paris.
