Kathmandu: The Ministers for Education from all member countries of the SAARC have convened virtually to share their respective experiences on COVID-19 effects on education in the SAARC region.

In the virtual meeting organized by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and SAARC Secretariat on Thursday, the Education Ministers talked about leveraging alternative methods of teaching (also ICT) to continue with teaching learning activities during the pandemic.

According to spokesperson at the MoEST, Deepak Sharma, the Education Ministers’ experience-sharing revolves around facilitation for teaching in rural areas, reopening of the educational institutions shut down due to COVID-19, implementation of new academic sessions, development of teaching materials and tools and management of public examinations among others.

During the meeting, participants also discussed garnering mutual cooperation and support in achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number four on education, which aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promotes lifelong learning opportunities for all.

They also explored possibilities in the production of electronic devices for teaching learning activities in SAARC countries through regional cooperation, informed spokesperson Sharma.
