COVID-19 threatens the Progress of Global Literacy. This is how we keep up Momentum

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Sep 11, 2020 | World Economic Forum, Charles Chen Yidan

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted school operations and the learning experience, leaving many schools unable to reopen as remote technology is inaccessible. The education systems in low-income countries are particularly challenged in enhancing the teaching of skills for the 21st century, including competencies in literacy and numeracy, technical and scientific know-how for problem solving, and soft skills for teamwork, collaboration and conflict resolution. Charles Chen Yidan suggests in this article for the World Economic Forum that as today’s children will face a labour market in which they will compete against automated technologies, new ways of learning are needed to make them more curious and creative. Recent research discoveries will enable transformative interventions with potential benefits for millions of children.
