This study shows that emergency preparedness facilitates a more relevant, timely, effective, and efficient humanitarian response, which in turn improves how affected communities’ needs are met during emergencies. Creating an evidence base for these potential benefits is vital to making the case for investment in humanitarian preparedness. This study, like others carried out before it, helps qualify and quantify the benefits of preparedness. The ROI Methodology used in this study is a tool for humanitarian practitioners to make the case for their investments in a way that helps decision-makers understand the trade-offs involved. This framework relies on carefully analysing and comparing how a humanitarian response in different risk scenarios would occur with and without the investment having been made. This methodology enables the development of business cases. Indicators derived from this comparison are defined as ROI indicators. Using this methodology, a joint Learn More and PwC team appraised 11 capacity development investments collectively valued at £3,874,424 in Ethiopia and the Philippines, funded through the DEPP programme.

There is no shortage of apologists praising Hour of Code’s participation rates, but there is even more to celebrate than just those big numbers. Here, we take a closer look at the wildly successful phenomenon.
Hour of Code initiative is the simple idea that students from all around the world are taught an hour of computer programming, usually during Computer Science Education Week. For some pupils, it remains only an hour. For those who want more, there are extension courses, community events and an almost endless bank of free resources with which to train.

Teachers may be the masters of their classroom domain, but they are rarely involved in the design of it. Innovations, especially edtech, are often placed in their hands without their say so. And if they have not been integral to the development of such material, the results can fall flat. This was the case when interactive whiteboards were rolled out across the UK. As part of a £15bn school refurbishment plan, they were introduced without teacher involvement, and were then found to have no subsequent rise in pupils’ attainment linked directly to the technology.
Learn More surveyed teachers to get a sense of how involved they felt in the creation of educational content. We found that teaching unions are not perceived to be sitting at the table during the design of policy and products, and teachers at an individual level feel shut out from the development of the very tools they use every day.
