My Rights, My Voice Annual Progress Report 2013

My Rights, My Voice (MRMV) engages marginalized children and youth in their rights to health and education services in eight countries. The 2013 Annual Progress Report provides an overview of the second year of this innovative three year programme and of the MRMV Global Programme Framework

In 2013 the Annual Learning Event, Mid-Term Review process, Strategic Gender Review and Global Advocacy Workshop were important moments of reflection, review, alteration and innovation.These events and processes also highlighted programme challenges, especially in relation to strengthening our gender analysis to ensure we are supporting the specific experiences, needs and aspirations of girls and women.

There was significant progress against our four key objectives. The number of young people and their allies reached through awareness-raising messages in 2013 more than trebled to over 207,000 children, youth and their allies (47 per cent girls and young women). Young people also took greater responsibility for awareness-raising activities, educating their peers and allies using a variety of methods and channels, including social media and popular culture.

MRMV-supported groups' organisational skills and ability to develop shared agendas increased. Critically the number of meetings between organised youth groups and duty-bearers doubled to 113.

All projects cited examples of duty-bearers recognising child and youth groups as valid bodies to engage, discuss and consult with about health and education services, listening to them and taking initial action as a result of MRMV lobbying and advocacy activities.

My Rights, My Voice Annual Progress Report 2014

The 2014 My Rights, My Voice (MRMV) Annual Progress Report provides an overview of the programme's progress as well as developments and highlights in the third year.

Children and youth, especially girls and young women, living in poverty are among the most marginalized and voiceless within society. Almost half the world's population are under the age of 25 and almost 85 percent of those live in developing countries, yet they are rarely central to decision making processes affecting their lives and do not always have the relevant information about their choices or rights.

MRMV is working through partner organizations and directly with marginalized children and youth, their allies and with duty bearers around the world to engage these groups in ways that strengthen and support their voice and rights to health and education, and to ensure that the interests and voices of children and youth will be heard long into the future.

2015-2016 Summer Melt Texting Initiative: Lessons Learned on What it Takes to Launch a Program

At Great Lakes we focus on helping students of color, students from low-income families and those who are the first in theirfamilies to attend college. These underserved students have the most to gain from earning a degree or credential, but face the steepest challenges in getting there. One of the first barriers they need to overcome is "summer melt." The purpose of this report is to share lessons learned by three high school districts during the development and launch of a summer melt texting program.

NMC Horizon Report: 2017 Higher Education Edition

The NMC Horizon Report > 2017 Higher Education Edition is a collaborative effort between the NMC and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI). This 14th edition describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education. Six key trends, six significant challenges, and six important developments in educational technology are placed directly in the context of their likely impact on the core missions of universities and colleges. The three key sections of this report constitute a reference and straightforward technology-planning guide for educators, higher education leaders, administrators, policymakers, and technologists. It is our hope that this research will help to inform the choices that institutions are making about technology to improve, support, or extend teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in higher education across the globe. All of the topics were selected by an expert panel that represented a range of backgrounds and perspectives.
