European Schoolnet and Covid-19

European Schoolnet, the network of Ministries of Education, has moved quickly to enable member Ministries to share experiences and challenges, beginning with an online round table on 18th March 2020 and a series of follow-up actions focused on an exchange platform for Ministry partners to continue to share policies and strategies linked to particular topics, for example examinations, inclusion and supporting online teaching. Actions reported by the 18 countries represented at the meeting include coordinating and monitoring initiatives, providing guidance to schools and families, setting up platforms for distance teaching and collaboration, adding new resources and learning materials to repositories, free offers from publishers and EdTech companies, daily lessons broadcast by national TV companies, supporting families with connectivity and equipment, hotlines, webinars, MOOCs and crash courses for teachers and parents.
