By Wayan Vota on July 11, 2011

Inveneo is proud to be helping organize the ICT Petting Zoo at the 2011 USAID Global Workshop on Education and Development: From Evidence to Action.

Lead by the USAID’s Office of Education in the Bureau for Economic Growth, Agriculture and Trade (EGAT/ED), in cooperation with USAID regional bureaus, the Global Workshop on Education and Development will:

  1. Demonstrate the strategic importance of education in achieving USG development goals
  2. Provide the technical foundation to enable evidence-based implementation of the USAID Education Strategy and USAID FORWARD operating principles.

The Global Workshop on Education and Development will bring together USAID Mission and Washington staff with responsibilities in basic and higher education, workforce development, youth, capacity development, and training. They will be joined by other USG agencies, partners, and other bilateral and multilateral donors. This is a bi-annual opportunity for all in the education and training community to exchange ideas and experiences. Here is the draft agenda

Of special note is the ICT Petting Zoo, where interested workshop attendees can experience new educational technologies in live demonstrations by established and up-and-coming organizations.
