UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize For The Use Of ICT In Education

UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize For The Use Of ICT In Education

The UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICTs in Education, funded and established since 2005 by the Kingdom of Bahrain, rewards individuals, institutions, and Non-Governmental Organizations for projects and activities which demonstrate best practices in, and creative use of, ICTs to enhance learning, teaching and overall educational performance. It is UNESCO’s only prize in the field of ICT in education and seeks to recognize the organizations and individuals that are embracing ICT as a pedagogical ally and, in turn, make learning more effective. While acknowledging the importance of teaching innovations supported or enabled by ICT, it is essential that innovations ensure the security of children and promote the values and attitudes that are relevant to the building of sustainable and peaceful societies.

The theme for the 2015 Prize is Pedagogical Innovation in the Use of ICT in Teaching and Learning. In an effort to enhance learning, ICT is increasingly being used to personalize learning, differentiate instruction, fuel learning in contexts outside of classrooms, share resources, collaborate, streamline assessment and ‘flip’ classrooms.

 

WHO CAN ENTER? 
The Prize is awarded to individuals, institutions, other entities or non-governmental
organizations for excellent models, best practice, and creative use of information and
communication technologies (ICTs) to enhance learning, teaching and overall educational
performance. 
Presentation of candidatures and submission of nominations 
Candidatures must be presented by the government of a Member State of UNESCO or an
international non-governmental organization, maintaining formal consultative relations with
UNESCO and active in the relevant fields covered by the Prize. Each government or
international non-governmental organization is entitled to nominate only three candidates per
year. A self-nomination cannot be considered.
