China Mobile’s “AND” Education, a Solution for Mobile Online Learning
In China’s remote and poor areas, many school-aged children are left at home as their parents have to work outside all year round. These children are known as “left-behind children” while their teachers are called “rural teachers” and their parents are called “migrant workers”. This project aims to help the above-mentioned three vulnerable groups in China’s remote and poor areas to get the best education resources with ICT technologies, and to improve teaching standards in poor areas and to solve family and occupational troubles for migrant workers. The project seeks to provide left-behind children with remote “double-teacher classroom” learning opportunities and online learning services to ensure that they can get access to the same education resources as children in developed areas. It also intends to assist rural teachers in improving the teaching effect. Besides, it offers various services, including vocational training and job information to migrant workers. The experience of this project can also be immigrated to other communities with the same condition.
National implementation: China
Ongoing from 01/06/2005 to 29/12/2017
