Huawei, UNESCO launch resilient tech education platform

Huawei Technology in partnership with United Nation Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) launch a project called “Technology-enabled Open Schools for All” on November 25, 2021.
The project aims to build crisis-resilient education systems and connect school-based and home-based learning to ensure the continuity and quality of learning under both normal and crises in three African countries including Ethiopia, Ghana and Egypt.
The project is designed to support Member States to design, pilot test and scale up technology-enabled open school systems to ensure that education as a human right will not be disrupted. In addition, it aims to build a more crisis-resilient open school system, in all countries considering three pillars of new infrastructure for a learning system: technology, digital content, and the digital competencies of teachers and human facilitators.
As the COVID-19 pandemic unequivocally exposed the urgent need to build crisis-resilient education systems, UNESCO, with the financial support of Huawei, has thus initiated the Technology-enabled’ Open Schools for All’ project.
Dubbed Technology-enabled Open School Systems (TeOSS), the project which is being funded at a cost of $720,000 is being implemented by UNESCO and global ICT Company, Huawei.
The project will share information on national policies and programmes on digital learning, map out ongoing programmes of global key partners in the field, and explore possible synergies.
The project is set up in such a way it can mobilize potential funding and technical partners from international organizations, the private sector and NGOs that are operating in the countries. As the project develops it will review the effective or emerging practices worldwide to inform the implementation and further development of the project activities.
The project which was started in September 2020 in response to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to global education, seeks to design and contextualize technology-enabled open school systems and support the building of local technology-enabled open school systems.
By July 2023, the implementers hope to have piloted, tested and scaled up the local technology-enabled open school systems.
