BACKGROUND

Statement

The pandemic has shown that the internet is just like electricity and water and people really need it these days to survive. Slow Internet connections or limited access from homes in rural areas can contribute to students falling behind academically. In some parts of the world, online learning is just not readily accessible. The technology race is so far ahead that education can barely keep the pace and online learning just exposed the need for the old education system to be changed.

The gas mask and the climbing belt worn by these two kids depict how difficult for some students who live in rural areas to overcome disease outbreaks, wars and natural disasters to get an internet connection for online learning. In rural areas, gaps in internet access could lead to economic impacts on entire communities.
