Together, the five organisations are working in MOTIVE, a project whose main context is the creation of innovative conditions for improving the quality of teaching in an online environment. The interruption of the learning process in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic and the high degree of uncertainty about the development and duration of the crisis pose immediate risks to the effective functioning of the education system and to learning outcomes in the short and medium term. This creates the need to find appropriate solutions to ensure the adaptability, coherence and efficiency of the educational process in order to reduce inequalities, ensure equal opportunities for quality education, ensure the sustainability of acquired knowledge and skills, and reduce the risk of dropping out of school.
