UNESCO and Microsoft have joined efforts for the project Advancing Mobile Literacy Learning (AMLL), which promotes the use of technology to enhance literacy skills. AMLL has been implemented in selected communities in Bangladesh, Egypt, Ethiopia and Mexico.

The project, which was launched in 2015, equips educators and education leaders with technology training to enable them to provide more flexible learning opportunities and address individual learners’ needs. The overall aim of the project is to reach literacy learners whose needs were previously unaddressed.

Before joining [the project], we could not do anything. We have now learned the letters, and learned to write our details: address with full name and signature. I can calculate a little bit. I can read everything by spelling, and I can write.’ Peyara Begum, Learner, Bangladesh

In addition to acquiring literacy skills, facilitators and learners alike were able to improve their ICT skills. Participants in the project have shared their experiences in a video – which, together with other reflections on the project, was presented at UNESCO’s Mobile Learning Week 2018.
