Description

The Covid-19 pandemic has placed education systems in an unprecedented situation. At its peak, schools were closed in 190 countries, affecting 1.5 billion students, or 90% of the global student body. With almost no warning, governments and private institutions had to switch from presential to online classes, transforming the educational model and the relationship between technology and learning. This challenge has accelerated innovation, cooperation, and partnerships worldwide. It has also exposed data system vulnerabilities and inequalities in the access to infrastructure and educational tools. This session will explore the lessons that can be drawn from this crisis.
