The Need For Virtual Learning Has Never Been Greater
Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed how students are educated around the world. We all know that the slow pace of change in academic institutions globally is lamentable, with centuries-old, lecture-based approaches to teaching, entrenched institutional biases, and outmoded classrooms.
A catalyst for educational institutions
COVID-19 provides a catalyst for educational institutions across the globe to search for innovative solutions. GINIIS provides one such solution! Our virtual learning platform makes in-class and distant learning available to anyone, regardless of their location and level of IT literacy. For students in underserved households, the digital divide isn’t an abstraction — it’s a homework gap that they face every day. One FCC study reported an estimated 70% of U.S. teachers assign homework that requires access to broadband, and yet, according to the Pew Research Center, some 17% of U.S. teens are unable to complete homework due to lack of connectivity.
“It’s imperative that we do everything we can to prevent students and their families from being left on the wrong side of the digital divide.”
