Day 1 @ 15:45

PANEL - Doing schooling differently

Why - society changing means schooling changes;

  • some students can't get to school
  • students have the same classroom approaches all their schooling (unrealistic for life)
  • to cope with change and to broaden their idea of their role in education

What - need to provide different ways students can engage in learning (online, flexible, increase choices, different ways of learning engagement);

  • need not to teach same way online that happens in the classroom
  • design for choice and flexible engagement

How - start with school based changes- longer open flexible sessions;

  • classrooms in different spaces- asynchronous first then synchronous + check-ins
  • teaching beyond physical classroom 
  • increasing choice across time periods
