The Covid-19 pandemic has kept more than 1.57 billion learners in 186 countries out of classrooms with almost half without any learning opportunities especially in sub-Saharan Africa. Teachers, the cornerstone of the education system, are largely untrained in the use of digital tools. This technological divide is also felt in the most developed countries (in Europe, 14% of households do not have access to the Internet and 22% to a computer).

One solution widely explored by countries is the use of radio and television to reach a greater number of learners, especially the most vulnerable. Data shows that these traditional media cover more than 75% of households.

In the framework of the Global Coalition for Education to ensure #learningneverstops, UNESCO, in partnership with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), organizes a series of introductory virtual workshops :


The objectives of these workshops is to facilitate the sharing of knowledge on good practices in the development of educational broadcasting and, in so doing, to strengthen collaboration between educational content developers and broadcasting specialists.

The recording of the introductory workshops will serve as a basis for the production of knowledge-sharing modules for all interested countries.
