The toolkit responds to COVID-19’s impact on education and facilitates inclusive learning opportunities for children and youth during this period of sudden and unprecedented educational disruption.
See below a short description of each chapter, including a link to version 1 of the chapters :
- Remote learning strategy: This chapter supports systems in defining and continuously improving remote learning measures, supporting key stakeholders (students, parents, teachers) for effective use of these solutions and ensuring monitoring and quality assurance.
- Remote learning platforms: This chapter supports systems through a compendium of remote learning solutions, tools, and platforms and by developing an evaluation framework to help identify which solutions, tools, and platforms are most relevant to the local context.
- Planning to reopen safely (health and safety): This chapter supports systems with evaluating the tradeoffs to school reopening and defining health and safety measures to put in place before reopening.
- Re-enrollment: This chapter supports systems to identify students at risk of dropout and to engage students, parents and communities to ensure all students are back to school.
- Remediation: This chapter supports systems in bringing students to their grade levels and remediating lost learning from school closure and from existing learning gaps.
- Resurgence planning: This chapter supports systems in preparing for potential resurgence by setting up the infrastructure to anticipate it and effectively respond to it.
- Hybrid learning: This chapter supports systems in defining a learning approach combining remote and in classroom learning during school reopening and in preparation for potential resurgence.
- Recommitment and reform: This chapter supports systems in identifying longer term implications of the crisis and rethinking the new education system and reforming accordingly.
- Organizing for the response: This chapter supports systems in defining a new architecture to plan, coordinate, manage stakeholders and external partnerships, and develop required capabilities for an effective response.
