Event description

Description

Techfugees, in collaboration with Cambridge English Language Assessment, present this conference to explore how technology can be used to support refugees with English language learning.


Techfugees is a social enterprise coordinating the international tech community’s response to the needs of Refugees. Techfugees organises conferences, workshops, hackathons and meetups around the world in an effort to generate tech solutions that can help refugees. It also curates and promotes the best projects it finds for implementation in the field through Basefugees. The need for English language skills has been very clearly identified, and, as experts in English teaching, learning and assessment, Cambridge English Language Assessment are ideally placed to support Techfugees in their mission.



The conference on Saturday 29th October brings together refugees, teachers, investors, researchers, developers and academics to work together on some key issues. The day will be split into two distinct halves. In the first half, there will be the opportunity to hear from the people who know the context and who have already done a lot of work in the field of refugee education. In the second half, we will be asking all delegates to take part in workshops to come up with solutions to a series of challenges around refugees and language learning. We hope that the workshops result in solutions that can be implemented quickly and where they are most needed. The themes for the workshops are: language for Higher Education, teacher training and self-access content.

Access to English training and accreditation can open doors for refugees, making it easier for them to seek asylum, safety and information, to communicate with people they meet, and to integrate into communities. This conference is our attempt at opening doors and we look forward to collaborating with you on this.

Please note that this event will be filmed and photographs will be taken. If you do not wish to be filmed or photographed please let us know prior to the event.
