The year 2020 has been difficult for hundreds of thousands of teachers across the globe. They have had to learn to deliver their lessons using online platforms. Millions of students have done their lessons via websites like Zoom. This has caused a major transformation in education as technology has taken centre stage. The quality of education differs according to Internet speeds, and the levels of teacher preparedness and teachers' competence in using technology. It also depends on the devices students have. Many students had no lessons because they had no computer.

The Education Ministry in Malaysia has started a new initiative to help underprivileged children. Around 150,000 eligible pupils will receive a device so they can participate in online lessons. Malaysia hopes to build on the success of this to expand the programme. It wants to assist pupils and schools in need and find the best implementation method to expand it. There are plans to enhance educational TV shows for students with no Internet access. Malaysia will also employ sign language interpreters to help the hard of hearing. It wants to focus on students' needs.
