Supporting remote teaching and learning in developing countries: From the global to the local

This publication outlines how governments across South Asia, including Nepal, employed several strategies to enable continued learning during the pandemic in the most innovative ways. Furthermore, it also explores various models for remote teaching and learning, ranging from low-tech solutions to radio and television broadcasting, to support education continuity. Additionally, the volume explores how digital divides are created through limited access to technology, electricity and internet facilities. The research also provides case studies with practical examples of how teachers reflected on their ability to use technologies and how they overcame the challenges inherent in using newer technology and teaching strategies. Some case studies also reflect the journey of teachers’ professional development in adapting to remote teaching and learning and explore students’ experiences and their adaptations, learning and assessment during lockdowns.

The publication is part of the Connecting Classrooms through Global Learning programme, co-funded by the British Council and the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. It is delivered in over 30 countries around the world, including four in South Asia, and it seeks to provide opportunities for school leaders, teachers and students to develop core skills such as digital literacy, critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and imagination, and develop a global outlook through international partnerships and school-based projects. The programme also supports research, innovation and developing insights that are useful for policymakers to make informed decisions.
