Innovation in education: learning from experience
By Jo Bourne, Nicholas Burnett
Scaling up an innovation for maximum use and maximum benefit is never easy. The road to success is bumpy, and good ideas inevitably stumble into barriers – especially when the purpose of the innovation is to improve children’s learning experiences.
But innovation that can be effective, scaled up and replicated is precisely what is needed to tackle the challenges of the global learning crisis.

On UNICEF’s 70th anniversary, one in five children in the region needs humanitarian aid, providing a stark reminder of agency’s critical mandate to protect children
AMMAN, 11 December 2016 – Nearly one in five children across the Middle East and North Africa is in need of immediate humanitarian assistance, according to UNICEF.
An Action Plan for the protection of children from recruitment and use in armed conflict was signed between the UN and the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N). This paves the way to a tangible commitment from SPLM-N to seek real solutions to protecting the children of Sudan from recruitment in armed conflict.
Of 21 children earlier released from detainment for association with armed movements, 20 have been reunified with their families and one placed in an alternative care arrangement.
Child migration occurs everywhere in the world and for different reasons. Migration might be forced through natural disasters or war. It might be the result of exploitation, in the case of victims of trafficking.
