The Learning Renaissance

Beyond Covid 19: Education in the Time of Corona, June 6th 2020

I’m honoured to be part of this panel of distinguished educators on the Online Educational Leadership Forum for a discussion about education beyond the virus.

The COVID-19 crisis is unprecedented and has forced schools into closure across the world. UNESCO has been tracking the impact of the pandemic on education. As of May 25, UNESCO estimates that 69 percent of the world’s 1.5 billion learners⁠—have been affected by school closures. At its peak in April, around 90.1 percent of learners had been impacted worldwide. For a while now, educators around the world have been talking about the need to rethink how we educate future generations. While we are aware that the overall impact of this virus on our lives can be far-reaching, we attempt to explore — what its impact will be on 21st century skills and what it means for the future of education? Will this disruption get us all to rethink how we educate, and question what we need to teach and what we are preparing our students for? The panel discussion will also reflect on how this disruptive crisis can help us define what learning should look like for Generations Z, Alpha and beyond.

About educationalist04

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
