Knowledge, Learning, Community

What characterizes Bangladesh's technology response during the pandemic is the variety of tools used to support online learning, including television, internet, mobile phone, and radio. This philosophy of using multiple pathways is essential where not everyone has access to all services, and its continuation even after the pandemic is one of the five lessons learned in this post. Other lessons included a collaborative response based on the government’s philosophy of equity and inclusiveness, the ability to overcome stigmas about using technology to support education, and moving away from traditional pedagogies like rote learning.
