NEW PUBLICATION: COVID-19’s impact on education

Researchers in Pursuit Compendium report: South Africa report on COVID-19’s impact on education offers key lessons

South Africa report on COVID-19’s impact on education offers key lessons. The Commonwealth Secretariat partnered with JET Education Services on the Commonwealth #ResearchersinPursuit Bootcamp. Findings and recommendations from the study have been published in a compendium report highlighting challenges such as gaps in early childhood development services, and disparities in digital literacy and access to internet and internet-enabled devices, which are key considerations in lockdown learning.

Effects of the pandemic
Author Dr Amina Osman, who is a Commonwealth Secretariat’s education adviser, said the study demonstrates the deep and scarring effects of the pandemic on children’s learning and lives. The study drew on the experience and expertise of young volunteers, university students, newly qualified teachers, researchers, government officials and international experts.

Disparities in digital literacy
Findings and recommendations from the study have been published in a compendium that is available to the Commonwealth’s 54 countries. They highlight challenges such as gaps in early childhood development services, and disparities in digital literacy and access to internet and internet-enabled devices, which are key considerations in lockdown learning.

The study recommends equipping students to spot fake news online and enhancing learners self-sovereign identity (a digital identity which they own and control) to protect their personal data.
