Learning from Afar

UNESCO-UNEVOC Promising Practice

While primarily a health crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a wide-reaching impact on everyday life. This has been particularly felt in the education sector with schools closing and students around the world missing out on their education.

In UAE however, a strategy known as the ‘Schools Business Continuity Plan’ had already been developed in order to mitigate risk and reduce disruption to education in high-risk instances such as a pandemic.

Thus, UAE’s Minister of Education immediately introduced ‘Learning from Afar’, an initiative based on the emergency strategy with the aim of ensuring continued learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
