Laar, Mindel, Sep 2020, E-resilience in education: A conceptual framework, The COVID-19 health crisis pushed the education sector into online education, challenging both students and teachers to work with technological devices and software instead of joining face-to-face meetings. However, providing education online does not mean actual learning will take place. This policy brief presents a framework to visualise the e-resilience of the educational system, including ICT-related factors withinrnthe educational systems that determine capacity of that system and actors in the system to deal with shocks. Policymakers and educations providers should be mindful about the various levels or ‘layers’ within society, as inequality in each of the levels may increase because of lower e-resilience at that level, More information
