The pandemic has taken an unprecedented toll on humankind. From loss of lives, livelihoods to loss of learning, its effects have been far reaching across the globe. In India especially, with its digital divide, online education hasn’t really taken off at the scale it should have achieved. According to a School Children’s Online and Offline Learning (SCHOOL) survey, online education in India had a very limited reach. In urban areas only 24% and in rural area only 8% of the children attended online classes on a regular basis. The lack of digital devices such as laptops and smartphones, patchy internet connectivity and even basic amenities such as uninterrupted power supply all wreaked havoc on the education system in the country.
