What Is UNESCO-Pearson Initiative for Literacy?
Information and communication technology (ICT) is primarily changing the way people work and live, learn and socialize. But 758 million adults, including 115 million youth in the world are still lacking the basic literacy skills required to boast the benefits of increasingly digitized economies and to fully engage in modern society.
A joint venture by UNESCO and Pearson, an international educational company analyzes new ways to enable low-literate and low-skilled youth and adults to gain from comprehensive digital technologies, following which their basic and literacy skills will be strengthened.
By analyzing, reporting, and sharing various ingenious case studies from around the world, this project will develop instructions for creating more broad, usable and available digital policies and solutions with an end goal of closing the global literacy gap by 2030.
In the forthcoming months, each of the finalists will closely work with UNESCO to develop the case study, and it will be published on the official website of UNESCO. The initial batch of case studies with the theme 'Literacy in a Digital World' will be exhibited on the 8th of September 2017, which is also celebrated as 'International Literacy Day'.
This initiative by UNESCO-Pearson will develop a set of guidelines on the basis of trends analysis and the 14 case studies. Digital solution providers, governments, and financial & technical partners will further use these guidelines to illustrate the positive impacts of digital technology on the low-literate or low-skilled people in the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals.
This collaboration as a part of Project Literacy movement brings together a global and diverse cross-section of organizations and people to help unlock the competence of communities, families, and individuals everywhere with a vision that no child will be born with the risk of lacking literacy.
