COVID-19 and education in Asia and the Pacific: guidance note

This guidance note underscores the potential of education technology (EdTech) solutions in transforming learning, teaching, and training systems, especially during and after the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, governments have been coping with and responding to the challenges posed by the closure of education institutions while guidelines from international agencies seek to address the disruptions and responses. Drawing from and reinforcing the key principles of these courses of action, the guidance note also provides suggestions and pointers that stakeholders in developing countries can consider for a long-term road map to improve quality, relevance, and inclusion in education. It is one of a series produced by ADB for key sectors and thematic areas.
