The COVID-19 pandemic has suddenly transformed learning and teaching around the world. According to UNESCO, around 1.5 billion students are out of school in over 165 countries affected by the pandemic. Due to massive school closures, there is a huge interest in distance learning and solutions using technology and digital innovations to improve teaching and learning. An essential requirement for shifting from physical classrooms to online learning creates many implications on urban activities and the future of urban management.

The pandemic has exacerbated the existing learning crisis for low-income and upper middle-income people in Asia and the Pacific. Prior to the outbreak, physical access wasn’ta key contributing factor to the learning crisis; rather, children were not learning despite going to school. The pandemic has amplified concerns of access as well as poor learning. Basic literacy and numeracy skills of the next generation in these countries are likely to decline unless there is immediate and meaningful intervention.

The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing governments around the world to find innovative and practical approaches to improve teaching and learning. An unprecedented surge in online learning provides opportunities to reimagine new ways teaching and learning. But how can cities answer the problems and challenges triggered by the pandemic, and new ways of teaching and learning with their urban planning and management?
