How did the COVID-19 transform the Bulgarian School System overnight?

  • The majority of Bulgarian pupils have access to a computer or a laptop and an Internet connection. However, schools do not provide such devices for individual work. Only 25% of primary school, 28% of secondary school and 36% of high school pupils study at a school, which provides the necessary number and quality of digital devices with the needed Internet connection.
  • About 35% of Bulgarian schools have their own virtual learning environment. In 90% of those schools it is accessible outside the school. 15% of secondary school teachers say that they do not need further professional training on the use of ICT in their work, whereas 23% think they do need more training.
  • Half of the parents support their children when they have to complete a task on the computer or online (they help every day or every week). At the same time, about one third of children use a computer or the Internet on their own with no control from their parents.
