WHAT DO WE DO TO RESPOND TO COVID EDUCATION EMERGENCY? – 9# Video tutorials on OER and digital tools for teachers by ProDidactica
The impact of the pandemic on the education systems across the globe is immense for numerous reasons. On one hand, most countries in the world have closed down schools and moved to some type of online learning which will surely impact the quality of learning but at the same time impacts the home lives of teachers, students and their parents.
The members of NEPC network promptly reacted to this situation to support and cater to the needs of their beneficiaries. In this series, we will present the activities and the practices that our members implemented, adapted or reinforced as they could serve as inspiration for other actors dealing with the implications and impact that this unexceptional circumstances had and still have on education.
In this issue, we feature the initiatives of our Moldovan member, Educational Center ProDidactica.
