  "description": "<p>Key points:</p>\n\n<ul>\n\t<li>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</li>\n\t<li>The digital divide means that internet and mobile network access varies greatly in middle- and low-income countries</li>\n\t<li>Governments can provide immediate support by informing teachers about simple grassroots platforms where they can share their own ed-tech solutions</li>\n\t<li>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</li>\n\t<li>It will be important for education authorities to begin planning how in 12-months&rsquo; time they will diagnose and treat the learning gaps that have emerged during the crisis.</li>\n</ul>",
