Profuturo is a digital education program that has renewed its collaboration agreement with Mensajeros. Thanks to this, 320 Iraqi refugee students and 20 teachers in Jordan will be able to integrate educational innovation in the classroom and transform the learning experience for the students.
Since 2020, Profuturo and Mensajeros de la Paz have been working together to ensure the right to education.
Profuturo, a digital education program promoted by Fundación Telefónica and Fundación “la Caixa,” has renewed its collaboration agreement with Mensajeros to expand an educational project that will benefit a primary school attended by 320 Iraqi refugee students and 20 teachers in Jordan.
The main goal of the project is to integrate educational innovation in the classroom, thus improving the quality and transforming the learning experience for the students.
The school has received technological equipment and teacher training in digital competencies. Through these resources, children will be able to continue learning essential subjects like language and mathematics while developing the 21st-century skills needed to face the challenges of the digital age.
“I really enjoy learning and practicing with the tablet; it's easy and a lot of fun.”Laila, 12-year-old student
Laila, Ayat, and Samir are three of the individuals benefiting from this agreement.
Laila is a 12-year-old student, and Profuturo is her first introduction to the digital world. She hadn’t used the internet or digital devices before. She comments, “I really enjoy learning and practicing with the tablet; it’s easy and a lot of fun.”
“is educational methodology doesn't force students to learn; instead, they learn while enjoying the experience”Samir, computer science teacher
Ayat is the local coordinator responsible for preparing and guiding teachers in the use of the digital platform: “We provide them with training on Profuturo in general, on the digital solution and its activities, but we also show them why it is important for our schools. Additionally, we help them prepare their classes and provide training in classroom management, teacher well-being guidelines, and how to deal with students and technology.”
Samir studied Physics in Iraq but now works as a computer science teacher. “What I value most about this educational methodology is that it doesn’t force students to learn; instead, they learn while enjoying the experience. They can’t stop asking when it’s their turn for a class in the digital classroom,” he says.
Since 2020, Profuturo and Mensajeros de la Paz have been working together to ensure the right to quality education in this emergency context.
