WISE Awards event names six winners for 2016
The WISE Summit was established in 2009 by the Qatar Foundation, which is chaired by Moza bint Nasser.
The WISE Awards reward effective, innovative devices in the field of education. Every year, WISE Awards partners come together to vote on project winners. Winners receive a $20,000 grant and are highlighted at the summit and in WISE communications and publications.
“This is the fourth year that Parthenon-EY is working with WISE, and it is always a fascinating adventure,” Ashwin Assomull, director general of partner organization Parthenon-EY, said. “Our team performs the evaluation of the finalists in the field based on parameters that are WISE impact, innovation and growth capacity. We produce detailed reports for jury WISE, which makes the decision.”
The winners of the 2016 WISE Awards are Tara Akshar Literacy from India; Education for Growth and Value Creation (Education for growth and value creation) from Lebanon; JUMP Math from Canada; Geekie – “personalized learning for all” from Brazil; and Little Ripples from the United States.
