ICTP 098: Community Chat on leveraging ICT during the coronavirus pandemic

av ICT Pulse Podcast | Publicerades 3/25/2020

In this Community Chat, and with members of the Caribbean tech community, Allison James and Amit Uttamchandani, the panel discusses ICT and COVID-19 (the coronavirus): some of the challenges that are being experienced, ways it can be better leveraged, and emerging opportunities.

We also discuss:

  • Whether there would (or should) be a difference between how a business approaches what might be perceived as short-term interventions, such as having its employees telework, as opposed to if those measures are to remain in effect for several months?
  • What might be some of the ICT infrastructure-related  challenges and considerations, in order to support remote working?
  • Although considerable attention has been given to e-learning and equipping classrooms with computers/laptops/tablets, why does it appear that remote learning is still a challenge in some countries?
  • Many of the terminal exams that shape the trajectory of people's lives, such as Grade 6/Common Entrance, O-levels, A-levels, should be occurring in May and June, but are being postponed. Are there options or solutions that could be considered?
