H97: Global Educational Inequalities and Technology Disparities During COVID-19 in Splash Spring 2021 (Apr. 17 - 18, 2021)
This class will discuss and explore how COVID-19 has shed light on massive educational inequalities and technology disparities throughout the world as well as exploring long and short term solutions. The intended purpose on this class is to show students that people around the world are suffering (most even more after the pandemic than before) and that they—the students—have the power to invoke change, even if it’s in their own communities. This will be approached with a MUN teaching style and students will have the opportunity to debate and discuss the issues presented in order to come up with an actionable plan that they can act on in the coming months to help disadvantaged students in their own communities overcome these educational gaps.
