On 23rd of March 2020, Lagos state closed it schools one week early because of the Coronavirus (aka COVID-19) pandemic currently disrupting the lives of many around the world. Several other states followed suit. Since then, the Federal Government has initiated a compulsory lockdown aimed at stemming the spread of the virus. For the first time, many children are being forced to access alternative forms of learning from their homes.
There now appear to be a plethora of public and non-state efforts which aim to plug schooling and learning gaps. Many of these efforts are also targeted at redressing a learning slide in the event of a prolonged nationwide lockdown. These initiatives include low-tech solutions requiring no access to data-enabled devices and higher-tech solutions requiring both devices and data. Very little is however known about the efficacy of the methods and models being adopted, and the effectiveness of these interventions.
In light of this, TEP Centre has decided to draw on its recognised competence in research and education landscape by reaching out to education innovators, government, teachers, parents, and students to help us understand how education is being delivered at this time.
