Jordan News Agency: Google.org provides grant to Queen Rania Foundation to create K-12 Arab online Arabic learning platform. “The Queen Rania Foundation and Google.org agreed to create an online learning platform for Arabic Open Educational Resources (OERs) targeting K-12 students and their educators across the Middle East and North Africa region. Announced in London, the initiative comes at a crucial time to help make sure millions of children across the region have access to quality education. Today, an estimated 13 million MENA children, equivalent to 40% of the school age population, are missing out on an education because of conflict and displacement. The refugee crisis has also strained existing education systems in host countries, like Jordan and Lebanon that have taken in large numbers of refugee students, compromising the quality of education offered to both local and refugee children.”
