An estimated 33 million children globally are displaced due to war-induced conflict. In Ukraine alone, over five million children have been displaced following Russia’s invasion, with their education and mental health severely impacted. Help from the Information Systems (IS) discipline is urgently needed, requiring us to go beyond prior works that focus narrowly on either mobile learning or mental health, and mostly in developed nations. In response, this paper develops a scenario-based design of an integrated mobile learning and mental health app for Ukrainian war refugees. The proposed app ‘EduCare’ seeks to deliver structured, contextually relevant education in a language familiar to the children while simultaneously fostering mental wellbeing. In conclusion, this study highlights the interconnection of mobile learning and digital mental health amidst crisis, contributing to the broader dialogue on the role of IS scholarship to strengthen education continuity in disruptive times.
