With the aim of offering distance education to Mexican students during the Coronavirus pandemic, the Mexican Government announced an agreement with Televisa, TV Azteca, Grupo Imagen and Grupo Multimedios to broadcast classes to more than 30 million classmates. Mexico will resume classes remotely from next August 24th.
‘We are convinced that, despite adversity, it is possible for our students to continue with their learning process. This does not mean replacing schools. Teachers are irreplaceable’, explained Esteban Moctezuma, Mexican Education Minister.
As officially reported by Grupo Imagen, the channels that will be available to implement the plan in Mexico will be 3.2 (Imagen TV); 5.2 (Televisa); 7.3 (TV Azteca) and 6.3 (Multimedios). Likewise, those who do not have access to TV will have a radio frequency available to access the content.
Also during the pandemic, the launch of the ‘TV Educa’ TV channel, with educational content for Chilean students, was announced in Chile, and will be available in the country until next September 14th.
