The COVID-19 global health pandemic has completely flipped the education system upside down. Schools, teachers, and parents are all scrambling to find ways to keep students productive and engaged as academic institutions are being suspended indefinitely.
Most of us never expected we would ever face this dilemma; that we would have to ask ourselves what would happen if one of the most normal aspects of our daily lives is taken away from us. We never expected we would need an answer to the question, "What do we do if no one can physically go to school anymore?" This is an unprecedented problem that we must address collectively.
With government lockdowns, companies mandating "work from home" polices, and schools being closed — everyone is stuck at home, forcing families to adjust to these new dynamics.
However, we cannot stop students from learning and teachers from teaching as we navigate this "new normal." We must find ways to support our education system as best we can.
Schools and academic institutions are looking towards some of the world's most successful companies as examples of how to use technology to deal with this crisis.

We believe they are one of the most important and most underappreciated groups in our society.
