The Digital School signed a memorandum of understanding with the Mobiles for Education (mEducation) Alliance to develop innovative e-learning solutions for students in underserved communities.

Supporting the Digital School’s goal to reach one million students within five years, the agreement enables both parties to exchange knowledge and expertise to enhance learning of students in refugee camps and remote areas and provide an equal access to quality education. Under the MoU, the Digital School will join mEducation Alliance’s efforts, in partnership with organisations, agencies and donors, to employ technology in education and organise forums, activities and e-learning competitions.

The MoU was signed in the presence of Omar AlOlama, Minister of State for artificial intelligence, digital economy and remote work applications and chairman of the Digital School’s board of directors, Dr. Waleed Al Ali, secretary general of the Digital School and member of the board of directors and Anthony Bloome, executive director and founder of the mEducation Alliance in the presence of several officials.

The two parties will cooperate in identifying partnership opportunities in different countries, and in developing technologies to implement joint digital education projects.

Through the agreement, both parties will jointly conduct quantitative and qualitative research on best educational practices in underserved communities and remote areas, provide consultations to educational institutions in local communities, and support efforts to fund humanitarian initiatives in the digital education sector.
