This week at World Bank EduTech
week of March 15, 2021
Throughout COVID-19, our team has been creating “knowledge packs” — short, pragmatic guides for educators to make informed yet quick decisions about various education topics, like designing and implementing educational TV and radio and engaging with the broader edtech ecosystem — to support the principles outlined in our EdTech strategy paper, Reinventing Human Connections (now available in Arabic!). Learn more about these knowledge packs and related podcasts and upcoming events below.
