The Ministry of Education is in renewed effort for online learning amidst the hit of the third lockdown to help students proceed with academics without disruptions.
The strategy will include the SHUPAVU app that is currently used by students to continue with their learning amidst school lockdown, remote learning lessons through radios, TV stations.
The new partnership is engaged between the Ministry of Education and UNICEF and other stakeholders.
Approximately 2.5 million students are expected to access these online learning systems.
Minister of State in charge of Primary and Secondary Education Hon. Gaspard Twagirayezu hails partners for helping students learn online.
“When schools resumed, remedial education was put in place to ensure the students are given proper support. Partners like UNICEF have contributed to both initiatives and we are happy for this achievement despite difficult circumstances,” Twagirayezu said.
Since the outbreak of covid-19 on March 14, 2020, when the schools were closed the Ministry of Education started to find new systems how all students could proceed with their studies after having no physical classes.
The remedial education has helped students who have fallen behind and provides them with more hours of learning, helped by trained teachers using a remedial education curriculum and learning resources, to ensure that no student stays uninformed.
