The theme for 2020 was: SOCIAL DISTANCING and DIGITAL DIVIDE
2020. It sure hasn't been easy. People are struggling all around the world with a global pandemic, racial injustice, damaged economies, unemployment. You know the old saying though — "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." Assuming we are entering into "new normal" with social distancing at the place, how we can improve Remote Learning, Remote Working? How we can help those who are not privileged to have these opportunities due to the Digital Divide revealed by COVID?
