About This Event

.Over the past year, COVID-19 was an unapologetic agent of acceleration, shifting one billion learners from in-person to online learning within two months. The rapid transition to online learning exposed many schools and workforces’ lack of readiness for a blended learning environment. It also widened the learning equity gap for students, with fewer than 40 percent of students from low-income families having access to the tools required for remote learning.
