With the use of multimedia content on YouTube, public access television, and streaming services, as well as strategy and simulations games. With the ability of society to produce high quality images, blogs, and videos with the smart phone, we can find and encourage free or low cost content targeted at certain subjects.  In addition with concepts of hyper-learning and the advances in artificial intelligence, we can create content that adapts to the child's mastery of learning objectives and offer remedial lessons or more advance lessons until the child demonstrates master.  With the variety of content and AI can adapt the content to learning styles and subject master. To provide this for diverse, socio-economic students in grades K-12, we will have overcome this in an multi-device, multimedia channels to account the issues with the digital divide. 

What is the need are you focusing on?

Providing engaging yet educational remote learning for economically diverse students to have equal access to quality education. In the post-pandemic environment, there will still be disparities in the quality of education in communities. This service would also be a fun and entertaining means to supplement in school education. As my teen daughter struggles to find the Zoom instructor-led sessions interesting, I've noticed that she has lost the unstructured time to engage with classmates, as well, as the instructors struggling to make the course interesting and engaging.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

Pre-K Godard school is using videos to educate and entertain students. Not there are news channels providing eductational shows on public access television and YouTube. In addition, many school districts and businesses are offering laptop computers, and the cable providers are offering limited access to provide internet capabilities for free.
