As schools began to close earlier in the year, at the EdTech Hub we started to look at how governments pivoted to distance learning, with a number of country case studies exploring this shift. While the full case studies will be released soon, this blog gives an overview of the first of these into India’s response.
The onset of COVID-19 dealt a huge blow to the Indian education system — one of the largest in the world. In this blog we ask: How has the system responded? What technologies have been put in place to support distance learning?
Over the last months, the Hub has been collaborating with the Central Square Foundation (CSF) to document the Indian governments’ education response to COVID-19, particularly the use of technology to support distance learning at the primary and lower secondary level.
