The UNICEF report issued in November 2020 revealed that more than a billion children are at risk of falling behind due to school closures in 188 countries, in an effort to contain Coronavirus.
The UNICEF report indicated that the school closures prompted many governments to search for alternative solutions such as the Internet, television, and radio. Online platforms have been the most used medium by governments; to deliver education to schoolchildren during the pandemic, as 83 countries have adopted this method.

Technology; The first shield of humanity in dealing with crises
