The novel coronavirus pandemic in India has forced to shut down education institutions temporarily as a measure to curb the spread of the virus.
With no immediate solution to stop the outbreak of COVID-19, the eco system is moving towards digitization resulting in many private schools resorting to online classes for students to ensure that learning continues.
But what about the millions of primary and upper primary teachers in Government schools who are untrained and do not have the necessary digital skills to handle the “new normal” situation.
According to the UNESCO report on May 28, around 2.7 million teachers from India who had been impacted by the pandemic are untrained to handle the changed situation.
In order to respond to new societal, economic and digital needs and strengthen the education systems, The We Foundation has approached the change-makers,
The Government Schools, Administration and collaborated with Cognizant to help create a favorable environment for digital transformation impacting the learning of underprivileged children.
