    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Key points:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Technology can help mitigate the effects of the educational crisis and closures of schools, but ed-tech is not a silver bullet and governments need to have realistic expectations about what it can achieve&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;The digital divide means that internet and mobile network access varies greatly in middle- and low-income countries&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Governments can provide immediate support by informing teachers about simple grassroots platforms where they can share their own ed-tech solutions&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Educational TV and radio broadcasts in combination with SMS are effective communication channels between educators and students when the internet connectivity is poor or not available&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;It will be important for education authorities to begin planning how in 12-months&amp;rsquo; time they will diagnose and treat the learning gaps that have emerged during the crisis.&lt;/li&gt;
