Welcome to the UNRWA Digital-Learning Platform!

Simply click on your UNRWA Field below to find learning materials for each grade and subject.
About the UNRWA Digital-Learning Platform
UNRWA is committed to providing quality, inclusive and equitable education to all its students, both in times of relative stability and in emergencies. During emergency situations, Palestine refugee children may be unable to access their regular schools, leading to a risk of interruption of their education. The UNRWA Digital-Learning Platform was developed to provide UNRWA students with access to age-appropriate, relevant, and safe self-learning material that is in line with UN values and humanitarian principles, facilitating learning continuity for students while at home or studying in safe alternative learning spaces when schools become inaccessible. The platform includes free learning material for all UNRWA students from Grades 1 to 9 in UNRWA Gaza, Lebanon and Syria Fields, and for Grades 1 to 10 in UNRWA Jordan and West Bank Fields.
UNRWA Education Programme teams in each Field have developed these materials, which include self-learning cards, worksheets, videos, audio files, education games and tests, tailored to each subject and grade level and presented on the platform in a systematic way. The material is designed to be supportive of students’ protection and psychosocial wellbeing, respects copyrights and cites all references. The UNRWA Digital-Learning Platform is designed to be easy to use and facilitates accessibility to all children, including children with disability and can be accessed from a wide range of devices, including PCs, smartphones and tablets.
