MetadataShow full item record
Most countries worldwide during the COVID-19 pandemic adopted online learning as a means for mitigating the challenges facing face-to-face classroom education. The adoption of remote learning is largely informed by the decisions reached by individual country experts in pursuant to health guidelines of social distancing by the World Health Organization. Further, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) suggested recommendations to countries to implement to ensure that learning remains uninterrupted during the COVID-19 period. The paper analyzes critically the Kenyan situation in implementing and adhering to the UNESCO recommendations to enhance learning in all levels of education. Also, it evaluated the challenges faced and possible remedies in form of recommendations for future actions. The paper is largely based on library research to draw practical implications for both education research and policy.
