Covid-19 Education Resources

Links to blogs, reports, and other relevant resources compiled by NISSEM, with special attention to challenges facing schools and systems in the global south during the pandemic, and the world’s most vulnerable populations. Eventually this list will be culled to focus on instructional materials and learning platforms, as well as issues pertaining to curriculum, pedagogy and teacher preparation.
