Emancipation Education Thanks to a mobile digital device

Abstract : Within the remote and isolated Internally Displaced Person (IDP) camps of Northern Iraq, the needs of IDPs go beyond that of basic humanitarian aid as clearly expressed in the Inter-Agency Rapid Assessment Report, in August 2014. We have worked on a critique from an anthropologic angle and have noticed the gap between what it is acknowledged in the report and the effectiveness of humanitarian aid actions in the field. Regrettably, the report shows intentions that leaves IDPs with their concerns, especially regarding young people future. Where is the opportunity to reconnect with the world while in these camps? This article identifies problematic issues in relation to education and humanitarian aid in the camps and discusses the response to this critique in developing an emancipation through education project for disinherited youths living in the hostile IDP camps. The purpose is to evaluate how an NPO project could provide an answer by combining both a technological and pedagogical approach. Following the IDPs wishes, a two phase project is designed, based on praxis and emphasizes emancipation that privileges autonomy, a situated pedagogy, an oral transmission culture and creative transmission through theatre in order to fulfil the information and education needs of these youths.
