    Pivoting to Remote Teaching: How Young 1ove Provides Education During COVID-19

    School closures have been shown to lead to increases in dropout rates and long-term health risks. To prevent this during the COVID-19 pandemic, Young 1ove, one of the largest youth NGOs in Botswana, quickly pivoted from delivering in-person educational programs to remotely teaching students and assessing their learning.

    In our latest webinar, we’re turning things over to the leadership at Young 1ove, who’ll share valuable lessons on using new tools and retraining staff to maintain service delivery during closures and lockdowns. Join us on July 29, 2020 at 1 PM UTC / 9 AM ET to learn how to design and deliver remote teaching programs using SurveyCTO and other tools. Anyone who is interested in best practices for safe and remote service delivery, whether focused on education or not, will find this webinar helpful.

    A member of our expert support team will moderate a 20-minute presentation given by Young 1ove and then open the discussion to any of your questions. If you miss the live webinar, you can watch the recording that we’ll post in our video library.

    This webinar is brought to by the Safe People + Data Initiative, led by Dobility, the makers of SurveyCTO, to provide methodologies and resources for safer data collection, in response to new challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and the growing need for safety-focused innovation.

    Based on Young 1ove’s experience, you’ll learn broader approaches and best practices for shifting to remote service delivery, including the following:
    – Quick mobilization to collect and vet beneficiary phone numbers.
    – Redesign of programs from in-person to remote delivery.
    – Selection of remote service delivery and evaluation tools, such as bulk SMS services, phone surveying software, and mobile data collection tools (e.g., SurveyCTO).
    – Remote staff training on how to use new digital tools.

    Virtual Innovation Challenge: Driving Inclusive & Resilient Savings Groups

    Get excited! The Innovation Challenge from SG2020: The Future of Savings Groups is going virtual and that’s not the only good news. In the interest of being truly inclusive, they’re offering this interactive experience at no cost. In 2020, we’re reimagining learning events as disruptive and collaborative spaces where diverse voices are amplified.

    In the spirit of friendly competition, each of the below five finalists will present 7-minute ‘innovation pitches’ on driving inclusion and resilience for savings groups. Participants will be invited to share open and honest feedback on each innovation and will use digital polling to rate each pitch in live time and determine the overall winner of the Innovation Challenge.

    The Innovation Challenge will showcase what an entirely virtual SEEP Annual Conference will offer – energizing and catalytic learning spaces designed to collide existing how-to approaches with pioneering why-not experimentation in the economic development sphere.

    Time: 9 AM – 10 AM EDT
