Digital learning to reach excluded students

  • January 29, 2017

According to the International Telecommunications Union, a specialized agency of the United Nations, digital learning, tablets and laptops are increasingly being used to reach students with little or no access to education.

UNESCO says the digitisation of learning could be a means of accelerating progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, such as ensuring access to primary school for all children.

This process is already evident in Africa, which according to UNESCO has 30 million primary-age children not attending school, over half the global total.
