UNESCO is calling for candidatures for the 2016 edition of the UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in Education Prize. Since 2005, the Prize has recognized innovations in teaching and learning that leverage technology to improve educational outcomes.

The Prize aims to contribute to equity in education, a key pillar of the Education 2030 agenda, and the guiding principle ofSustainable Development Goal 4. The new agenda recognizes how ICT can be harnessed to assist historically underserved groups and assure inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all by 2030. 

The theme for the 2016 Edition of UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICTs in Education is the use of ICTs in education for disadvantaged groups.

The prize will be awarded on 21 February 2017 at a ceremony at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris where the winners will receive 25,000 USD each and a certificate of recognition signed by the Director-General and the Chairperson of the International Jury of independent experts.
