Education and COVID-19 Response
Our “Connecting Schools” program under TECH4ALL is underpinned by our industry-leading, affordable network solutions, like 4G/5G FWA, RuralStar, catering to scenario-specific connection requirements in remote areas.
While connectivity is the bedrock of closing the digital divide, we recognize that individuals and communities require the skills to use digital technologies. That includes the ability of teachers and schools to effectively use edtech and for the wider community to receive training in digital literacy.
We believe that education does not stop at the school gate, nor at a certain age. We believe in lifelong learning and we can provide the tools and capabilities to make this possible.
As a leading provider of ICT infrastructure and smart devices, we will work closely with our coalition partners to make sure that families stay connected, that schools and teachers have the platforms they need, and that all students have the right tools to keep learning from home.
We’d like to support UNESCO’s Global Education Coalition through our digital inclusion initiative TECH4ALL, where education is a key priority. Specifically, our education efforts cover:
(1) Connecting schools: expanding affordable Internet access and increasing the availability of digital training so that every school can access high-quality education resources.
(2) Skills on Wheels: providing training in digital skills to remote and underserved communities through mobile digital classrooms converted from shipping containers and buses.
(3) Empowering the Unempowered: helping deaf children learn to read by translating children’s books into sign language with mobile app StorySign.
(4) Building a thriving ICT ecosystem: working with universities and governments to cultivate young talents by developing ICT education content and providing quality training of innovative technologies (5G, AI etc.).
