Questo studio mostra come la preparazione alle emergenze faciliti una risposta umanitaria più pertinente, tempestiva, efficace ed efficiente, che a sua volta migliora il modo in cui vengono soddisfatte le esigenze delle comunità colpite durante tali emergenze. La creazione di una solida base di competenze e conoscenze per questi potenziali benefici è vitale per sostenere l’investimento nella preparazione umanitaria. Questo studio, come altri realizzati prima, aiuta a qualificare e quantificare i benefici della preparazione. La metodologia ROI utilizzata in questo studio è uno strumento per gli operatori umanitari per sostenere i loro investimenti: la responsabilità decisionale viene così facilitata grazie a una analisi e comprensione dei processi coinvolti. Questo quadro si basa su un’attenta analisi e confronto di come si verificherebbe una risposta umanitaria in diversi scenari di rischio con e senza investimenti. Questa metodologia consente inoltre lo sviluppo di casi aziendali e gli indicatori derivati ​​da questo confronto sono definiti come indicatori ROI. Utilizzando questa metodologia, il team di Learn More e PwC ha valutato 11 investimenti per lo sviluppo dal valore complessivo di £ 3.874.424 in Etiopia e Filippine, finanziati attraverso il programma DEPP.

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.
