The Future of Education is Now…
| Education Jagat - 16 Apr 2020

COVID-19 has arguably spread to all countries of the planet and more and more people are infected daily. The global pandemic has shifted the priorities for countries, companies, social groups and individuals globally.
 Like many other industries, the education sector is severely affected by the pandemic.
 When the governments decided that countries should go into lockdown, many schools and other educational institutions were not ready to implement e-learning tools.  As of last week, 165 countries had closed schools nationwide, impacting over 1.5 billion children and youth, according to UNESCO (The United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organization)...
 UNESCO's immediate action offers a comprehensive list of distance learning solutions including educational applications, platforms, and resources, which aim to help parents, teachers, schools and school administrators, facilitate student learning and provide social care and interaction during periods of school closure.
 In almost all countries, digital education tools support the education system to continue education access and communication with learners. There is a huge potential emanating from these recent joint efforts between the education and technology sectors for transforming the education sector and the countries should see the challenges as an opportunity for this digital transformation. In a first step, governments need to thoroughly analyse the experiences gained from the COVID-19 pandemic in order to inform future policies across the entire spectrum of the digital domain.
 The transition to digital education is certainly disruptive as it was not planned for the timeline the coronavirus dictated, but the educators and educational institutions will be better prepared in the future.
