Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Promoting Equity and Inclusion // This paper contains a review of three published articles by the author on various coping mechanisms implemented by Trinidadian (37), Grenadian (44), and Guyanese (12) educators during the pandemic. The two studies reflect the issues of absenteeism, digital divide, accessibility, parental involvement, student motivation and ways in which teachers in rural Guyana were alleviating learning loss. The sampling method used was purposive. The two studies are qualitative in nature with descriptive phenomenology capturing the participants’ lived experiences. Semantic and latent coding determined the major themes of the studies. The findings in these studies expand the extant literature on emergency remote education. // Paper ID 7269
