Mobile Learning Week
UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) holds a yearly ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) event. This year the theme is centred around empowering women and girls. The four areas being reviewed are equitable access, gender-sensitive content and pedagogy, literacy and skills development.
And UNESCO have partnered with UN Women, over 700 of them representing 60 countries worldwide. And one of them is DigiWoman Joanna Norton of Keywords English who is carrying out the study in Ireland with Newstalk.
Joanna is full of energy and enthusiasm for getting us Irish women involved in the project. Her focus with this campaign is to encourage women in Ireland to tell how your mobile phone supports what you do everyday. In the workplace, in managing family life, in keeping connected, in learning and education, and in various other aspects of life. What does you phone, tablet or computer mean to you most?
So DigiWomen we are asking you to post a photo and a short caption to Facebook/MLW2015 or tweet it using the hashtag #MLW2015
Joanna has already got some interesting results from the study and will be sharing these with UNESCO in the coming weeks. It will be interesting to see how Ireland compares to other countries.
