ideas, innovations and apps for social work in the age of smartphones and social media
‘Beyond School Books’ is a wide-ranging and provocative series of radio programmes on education in countries affected by conflict and natural disasters.
Each segment explores the role of education in the context of humanitarian response to conflict and post-crisis countries. The topics range from the struggle of Iraqi youths to study amidst war to how architecture is making significant strides in school construction and safety. Journalists, education specialists, young people and international figures speak on ways education can be – and has been – used to rebuild hope and foster social transformation in schools and communities. Special attention is paid to the unique experience of girls and young women in these complicated contexts.
Back on Track is an innovative programme designed to support and further international development work on education in emergencies and post-crisis transition countries. The site is a platform for ideas, information, materials and discussions on current trends and issues in the delivery of education services both during and after conflict and natural disasters.
