There are a number of opportunities happening around the pandemic. Remote learning has quickly become the standard for keeping people safe while learning.
The focus should be on the experience of schools, the administrators, teachers, students, and families. We need to develop resilient strategies based on impending spending cuts, enrollment, value propositions, technology, logistics, perceptions, parent, teacher, and student support.
We are looking for miracles. Until there is a reliable vaccine we need to prepare for a reality that includes deep learning, student led initiatives, higher thinking, collaboration, and project based assignments.
We need to help learners make the best choices. That may be a gap year for many higher education students. That may include supplemental learning from outside sources to help schools successfully balance the needs of their students and state requirements.
If learning is to be the focus then we need to embrace a world where methods must change. We need solutions from inside the community as well as outside. Prioritize curiosity and success will follow.
We are talking to some of the brightest minds in education and they are communicating these truths. Be part of the solution, get involved, our inbox is always open.
