Empowering Children To be Future – Ready
A short movie about a young refugee girl making her way through school through online learning.
Digital divides appears at every level of education whether it is something as simple as needing a webcam or something more critical like Internet access and a computer. The issue is most pronounced among refugees.
Refugee students, in particular, are not toting smart laptops, own a stable broadband connection or have full-time supervision at home. With myriad social hurdles refugee communities face – especially peaking in the pandemic – schools have an extra responsibility to maintain connections with parents to forge a supportive learning environment at home.
The digital divide problem in education isn’t new, but it is amplified by the pandemic and long-term school closures. Physical learning provide a structure, respite, and shelter in ways that digital learning never can. This is the very reason why Fugee launched a campaign to #connecttheunconnected, a movement to enrich the virtual learning experience for every student. Read more about the campaign here
