The Learning Passport provides learning continuity for millions of out-of-school children

Transforming Societies through Education

Microsoft Education: The Learning Passport is an innovative global platform that provides localized curriculum for students around the world. 🌎

A new solution designed to close the learning poverty gap, the Learning Passport is an 💻Online, 📱Mobile, and 📚Offline tech platform enabling high quality, flexible learning.

While the world and educational systems throughout it continue to grapple with challenges stemming from the pandemic, students across the globe keep learning in their local languages with the help of the Learning Passport.

Today, an estimated 35 million children are displaced globally as a consequence of war, natural disasters, disease outbreak, or other crises.1 In many countries, efforts to mitigate pandemic risk have separated 463 million students from school entirely due to a lack of remote learning policies or lack of devices needed at home.2 This means that many students will experience their third calendar year without education. 

Originally launched as a digital remote learning platform for displaced youth in September 2018, the Learning Passport was later expanded to provide out-of-school children with continued access to quality education as school closures became prevalent during the pandemic.

Developed by UNICEF and powered by Microsoft, the platform allows governments around the world to manage the educational crisis by enabling teaching and learning through localized curriculum that is easily accessible both online and offline.

“The global disruption to education caused by COVID-19 has been unparalleled, affecting 1.6 billion learners at its peak and leaving 463 million children unable to access digital or remote learning programs. To ensure the continuity of learning for children, we must reimagine education and transform education systems.” – Robert Jenkins, Global Director of Education and Adolescent Development at UNICEF.
