GSF members which operate in low-tech areas or work with parents who have minimum access to technology will share about their distance learning programmes and lessons learned. We’ll hear about their step-by-step process of planning and execution, their challenges, and their successes thus far. In addition, they will share their plans to scale these initiatives to a wider community.
