Imperial and Twig to contribute to UNICEF's Learning Passport
Imperial and Twig have launched a new initiative to create science content for UNICEF’s Learning Passport, a digital personalised learning platform. Through the partnership, science content created by Imperial expert educators and created by Twig Education’s remote learning team will be available to children and young people using the Learning Passport in Jordan, Puntland (Somalia), Timor-Leste and Ukraine, with expansion to more countries expected in the coming months.
The Learning Passport is a collaboration between UNICEF, Microsoft and The University of Cambridge to address the challenges faced by over 30 million children and youth to access continued, quality education due to disruptions caused by crisis and displacement. When COVID-19 shuttered schools for more than 90 per cent of the world’s schoolchildren, the platform underwent rapid expansion to help children access their school curriculum and other learning materials remotely. These are integrated into a cohesive curriculum and offered on a unique online platform.
Created through a partnership between Twig Education and Imperial College London, Reach Out Reporter and Reach Out Continuing Professional Development (CPD) are an online primary school science news service and 30 pre-prepared courses for teaching 5-11 year-olds.
