Abstract

In response to the challenge to education systems presented by the global COVID-19 pandemic, UNICEF and the World Bank have created a set of seven Resource Packs about remote learning. The packs are designed to support government officials and staff in national and international agencies tasked with designing and implementing effective remote learning opportunities for children in development and humanitarian contexts.

Remote learning is the process of teaching and learning performed at a distance. Rather than having learners meet their teachers in person, learners are distanced from their teacher and possibly their peers as well. One of the consequences of COVID-19 is that almost every country has had to put in place remote learning programmes. The packs are therefore designed primarily to help you to enhance and improve the effectiveness of existing remote learning programmes.

This introductory Resource Pack considers the key elements of a ‘pedagogy-first’ approach to remote learning, starting with the learner and learning, then considering technology options and your programmes’ broader approach to supporting learning. It discusses some of the most common considerations that remote programmes often overlook but which, if carefully considered, can lead to improved learning for more children.
