Health officials are currently taking steps to prevent the introduction and spread of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) into communities across the world. The pandemic situation is affecting the lives of many students, families & communities.
Schools around the world are doing their best for students by using new and existing online technologies. In these challenging times, tools, resources and tips are plentiful, but how do we find ones that really work?
Our esteemed partner HundrED has made an overview of homeschooling & online learning resources that support student learning and wellbeing. HundrED has released a website and a summary report, Quality Education For All During Covid-19, in partnership with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), expanding on the opportunities and challenges for education during this unprecedented time.
In the span of ten days, HundrED has documented, packaged and released a collection of 30 simple, yet effective solutions that help parents, teachers and children navigate through the plethora of challenges facing education during the pandemic. From the opportunity for teachers to form much stronger connections with parents, students (especially for students with disabilities) to challenges of untrained teachers and lack of access to digital learning resources, the report has plentiful insights and resources.

Thank you very much to the HunrED team and all our HundrED innovator colleagues specialised in ED-tech that have joined forces to create this overview!
–While you are here–
All MyMachine activities in the participating schools around the world are on-hold due to the measurements taken on Covid-19 in the different countries. We are in constant communication with the participating schools to evaluate the situation in each country and to look for solutions in continuing the great work students have so far been doing this school year.
We have also postponed our Book Launch event in Cape Town, South Africa, which was supposed to be held at the end of March. We are not yet capable of setting a new date, since we have to wait for instructions by the South African government.
Please stay tuned for updates.
We hope you and your loved ones are ok and wishing all of you who are suffering from this pandemic the strength needed to get though it all.
