Teaching children displaced by war has its difficulties. Teaching them through the help of volunteers who may have had little or no experience teaching is that much more complicated. Kathryn Zaniboni, 2017 Blossom Hill Fellow, is charting the path towards the first digital holistic "living guide" for teachers in refugee camps. The guide is based on feedback from co-creation sessions with volunteer teachers on the field. She recently launched the beta version of her collaborative platform, which will be tested in Athens throughout this summer. After evaluating the data from her testing, she will revise the platform and retest it in other parts of the region beginning in September. To view the "living guide" please click here.
Kathryn was highlighted recently as an MIT Solver in honor of Teacher Appreciation Day for her initiative to facilitate collaboration between frontline volunteers and professional teachers to improve refugee education around the world. To learn more, please read MIT Solve Article.
