About the Talk
According to UNESCO, more than 90% of the world’s students have been affected by school closures and it seems like a dark time for education. But what if we embraced this opportunity provided by school closure to reconceive what is possible for education around the world? What if we focus on learning that matters, inspiring students to embrace learning, empowering them to learn for themselves, in their contexts, what is relevant to them? What if we focus on preparing children for their lives, assessing them on their contributions, thinking and application of learning rather than assigning prescribed grades and rankings? What if instead of thinking about what they can’t do or how they don’t fit in or what is inaccessible, we focus on what we can do to bring change in education in line with UN SDG goals 4 and 10? Bringing together perspectives from transformative curriculum, development education, innovation thinking, special educational needs let’s embrace blue sky thinking and reimagine learning possibilities.
