Education continuity stories from the coronavirus crisis
A joint international initiative to learn from responses to the crisis
What can we learn from each other?
Almost every education system on earth has been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
As part of our joint initiative, we are collecting stories from across the globe about the solutions education systems are using to continue learning, and how they are adapting to different student and teacher needs during the crisis.
Hybrid models of learning in Chinese Taipei
Chinese Taipei has been successful in containing its number of COVID-19 cases to some of the lowest in the world. Nonetheless, they developed a series of contingency plans to ensure education would continue while maintaining safe classrooms and schools. Non-governmental organisations played a key role in this response.
A prender la Onda is an initiative started by Enseña por Colombia which designs, records and distributes educational podcasts via local radio stations, WhatsApp, community loudspeakers and podcast platforms. This grassroots solution is 100% led by teachers, and was rolled out and scaled quickly in response to the crisis.
