Education and COVID-19 Response
Science Bits and the ISTF commit to help schools, teachers and students impacted by co-vid to recover learning time lost and ensure those most impacted receive help and are not left behind. We are aware of the huge discrepancy in terms of equal access to education in developed countries and how co-vid has accentuated and increased the digital divide between the “haves and have nots”. The impact in developed countries has been especially great with statistics that indicate thousands of students - without sufficient access to internet and devices - were “lost”.
We can collaborate with Global Education Coalition and help recover these students and schools, teachers and students impacted in any country where EN or ES are relevant languages. We can bring to the GEC not just a solution that is proven to be best in class and grounded in scientific research but also scientifically proven to be efficient.
