Following the onset of C19, Bangladesh was required to rapidly deploy a remote education strategy to try to reach over 30 million school-age learners. With radio, TV and mobile 'phones as the more accessible technologies, the government and civil society organisations (CSOs) devised multiple approaches that tried to reach different communities of learners. A UNICEF and EdTech Hub collaboration has brought stakeholders together to make sense of these efforts ' and help set some common paths for future work. The panel brings a number of stakeholders together to discuss how the development of a common theory of change for a technology-enhanced education system in Bangladesh is supporting these efforts. It will also explore how to use these efforts as a foundation to begin effectively scaling initiatives.
