Education and COVID-19 Response
There is a massive and diverse set of global obstacles for education access. The global pandemic has widened that divide. However, an increasing amount of learning opportunities arise daily of a broading nature, some particularly geared to mitigate these obstacles e.g., zero/low-cost options, low-bandwith, work-and-learn solutions, online education, competency-based learning, adaptive learning, all types of blended forms and so on.
One of the biggest obstacles however is often overlooked: awareness and information. Many students faced with an obstacle do not have the information of the offer out there that would actually mitigate that obstacle. Some do have a hunch but not the confidence it could work for them.
We pledge to eliminate the information obstacle. Through comprehensive data, transparency and user-friendly search and 'best fit’ tool, making sure there is a future where no one needs to be missing on an education opportunity due to a lack of information.
