BBC News published this video item, entitled “India’s ‘loudspeaker and motorbike schools’ beat Covid fears – BBC News” – below is their description.
Many schools across India remain shut because of the coronavirus pandemic. But with online classes not being a viable option in many rural areas, teachers have had to come up with creative ways to carry on with their lessons. From using a loudspeaker to going around on a motorbike, some teachers have found alternative ways to teach their students. While India has allowed schools to partially reopen, many states are reluctant to do so due to rapidly rising Covid-19 cases.BBC News YouTube Channel
