As schools closed across Chile during the first wave of the pandemic, the Ministry of Education deployed a digital learning infrastructure to allow for education to continue. Now the Ministry faces new challenges with a progressive step-by-step re-opening of schools and a new approach to pedagogy. This webinar will discuss the lessons of the shutdown, the protocols and pedagogical approaches surrounding school re-opening, as well as the new possible roles of digital tools after the COVID crisis.
