Can’t Wait to Learn (CWTL) proposes new (cost-) effective solutions to the urgent challenges facing education for children in emergencies. By utilising innovative technological solutions with a focus on serious gaming, CWTL builds on concepts which have been successfully piloted in Sudan (e-Learning Sudan). CWTL has ambitions to increase the number of children with access to quality education in mathematics in areas affected by conflict in Africa and the Middle East, including in Jordan and Lebanon. The CWTL team, including its technical partners, will work together to digitise the Jordanian and Lebanese curriculum onto tablets, which will be used by children with guidance from a trained facilitator. In addition to mathematics, reading and psychosocial well-being-focused materials will be introduced to the CWTL portfolio during 2017. Developing fresh, interactive materials based on the national curricula and creating effective partnership structures to distribute these, creates new opportunities for making education accessible to those children who have been excluded. By facilitating their access to an effective and innovative learning tool, the CWTL programme seeks to increase children's resilience and support their educational (re)integration and progression.
