DFID EdTech Hub 5-year posts at University of Cambridge

posted 10 Jul 2019, 05:05 by ICO Education

The £20m+ “Research and Innovation Hub on Technology for Education” (EdTech Hub) grant has been awarded to a consortium of 6 partners including the Overseas Development Institute, University of Cambridge, Results for Development, Brink, Jigsaw and Open Development & Education. Funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the EdTech Hub will study over the next 7 years how effective, culturally appropriate uses of EdTech can – and do not – help to accelerate, spread and scale system-level interventions that lead to better learning outcomes for children in low-income countries. Importantly, the hub sets out to determine where EdTech offers the greatest value for money and social return on investment. The research team at Cambridge is led by Dr Sara Hennessy and includes 5 other colleagues in the Faculty of Education. We are currently advertising for 2 new full-time research posts and a programme administrator to be based in the REAL Centre:
