With Crisis Comes Opportunity: What Lessons can be Learned from Online Teaching?



In a matter of weeks COVID-19 changed how students around the world were educated. The closure of schools not only shook reality but reshaped the perception of what 21st century learning could be.

This change has been the perfect catalyst for schools to innovate quicker and overhaul entrenched institutional approaches to learning.  

As private schools remain anxious about the future, we ask if this crisis will see educators embrace the 'learning anywhere, anytime’ concept.

Join our panel as we look ahead, out of lock down.


Topics covered: 

  • How schools can safely transition children back into a school learning environment, without sparking a resurgence in infections.

  • The challenges of integrating technology in teaching and the impact on students, teachers and parents.

  • If online delivery will become a permanent feature in teaching going forward and how schools can preserve the magic of learning in a virtual classroom.

  • What financial modelling might look like for blended learning?

  • How schools can continue to maintain brand position and prove ‘value add’ and preserve parent loyalty, at a time of crisis.
