Herausforderung

COVID-19 changed education fundamentally. Access to technologies and the Internet needed to attend distance learning courses were not available for many families.  The sudden closing of schools created a new, challenging situation for teachers, pupils, and parents, especially those working in healthcare.

Idee

As schools closed due to COVID-19, we opened our programme to help overburdened healthcare workers home-school their children. Children in the programme are taught online by volunteer university students.

Akteur*innen

We immediately responded to the new situation by focusing on healthcare workers and their children, a target group heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, student volunteers used creative methods and innovative solutions to teach their online pupils. The volunteers gained experience and skills in collaboration, teamwork, creativity, problem-solving, and asserting themselves.

Wirkung

During the first 13 weeks of the pandemic, we supported 219 children of 87 healthcare workers.  363 student volunteers and 30 volunteers delivered over 3,000 online classes. The HospitalSchool Foundation provides professional assistance. Telenor contributes teaching recommendations and their speciality Internet access to the children of 120 healthcare workers.  

Transfer

The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic also shed light on a new target group, children with chronic illnesses who use digital education due to their disability. We launched the “I Study Online” programme to support them in September 2020.
