UNESCO publishes guide to support 776 million learners affected by school closings
The United Nations wants to reduce disruption in the field of education.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has released tips to facilitate distance learning. 776.7 million schoolchildren, middle school students, high school students and students are affected by school closings.
UNESCO wants to facilitate the work of teachers
It is not always easy to find the right formula for teaching at a distance. UNESCO does not want this health crisis to have an impact on the education of the world’s learners. It is on this premise that the United Nations teams have developed a guide which should enable educators and learners to become more effective in the context of distance courses.
In addition to learning portals, UNESCO has released a list of tools that should allow teachers to simplify their learning methods. We think in particular of ClassDojo, Google Classroom, KaiOS, or Can’t Wait to Learn, Kolibri, Rumie and Ustad Mobile. Video conferencing platforms have also been proposed. This is particularly the case for Dingtalk, Hangouts Meet and even Zoom. With this online guide, UNESCO wants to reduce disruption in the field of education and facilitate continuity of learning, especially for the most vulnerable.
