Education Reimagined: The Future of Learning
We are delighted to share the new paper, “REIMAGINING EDUCATION: FROM REMOTE TO HYBRID LEARNING,” a collaboration between Microsoft and New Pedagogies for Deep Learning. The COVID-19 pandemic has generated a torrent of individual and small-group responses as to how education could be transformed. We have found a groundswell of interest in the question, “How best to take advantage of the new opportunities arising from the disruption?” What people desperately need are opportunities to team up and find pathways of action that can deepen learning for students and teachers and to engage in new ways of learning that result in better outcomes.
We believe that the sudden shift to remote learning globally, while tremendously difficult, has propelled school system leaders and educators to reflect deeply on what works best for students and what innovations should be taken up. This in turn can cause upward pressure for important policy changes. It will take creativity and a lot of work to advance these changes while driving student learning and ensuring the well-being of youth and educators. In pursuing this kind of transformation, we are pursuing a better future for humanity.
It is crucial that we act now!
