2. #BuildingBackBetter strategies to improve the education of children from low-income communities
While digitization and virtual classrooms have been in conversation for some time, BRAC’s one-room classrooms have remained a working model for kids coming from low-tech, relatively low-literacy communities, providing students with enabling environments. With COVID-19 lockdowns, these schools have taken on a mobile learning model for the first time. In June, SIL partnered with BRAC Education programme and BRAC Technology to understand how teachers, students and their parents are faring through this transition, and how the programme should prepare for the future. In the first of our two-part episode on innovations in education, we speak with BRAC's Education programme head Profulla Barman on how the pandemic pushed us to go fully remote. Recorded in September 2020.

1. How to innovate with digital finance in a pandemic? Lessons from Bangladesh
Bangladesh's economic lockdown following the outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020 caused millions of households to fall back into extreme poverty. Tackling two-fold crises of health and hunger, the Government and development sector quickly reacted by engaging the growing digital finance ecosystem to serve the needs of the poorest. BRAC's programmes shifted their focus on providing financial assistance to at-risk families, while also adapting existing programmes to the new normal. Recorded in the early stages of the outbreak in March this episode brings thoughts from the Social Innovation Lab and Communications teams who work closely with programmes and clients.
