The Five Key Contexts for Designing Post-Pandemic Classrooms

July 15, 2020

We've survived a forced reconfiguration of school. Now the question is, how do we thrive in the future? As the lockdowns end, the pull for schools to return to the status quo will be powerful. The systems and structures and narratives that have defined education for over a century are deeply rooted both in both our personal experience and in our aspirations for our children. The Covid-19 pandemic has shaken those systems and structures and narratives to their core.

Forced into digital instruction, the school “experience” has been radically altered. Curriculum has been compromised. Grades and assessments have been eliminated. Requirements reduced. Our concept of "school" has been inexorably altered. What comes next is not clear. But there’s no question that the fundamental lenses through which we see the purpose and practice of education are now forever changed.

Any school leader thinking seriously about the future of their school and the prospects for their students must now recalibrate and reorient. Creating a new future of schooling requires school leaders to see the world as it is, not as it was. It requires understanding new contexts, and building new lenses. Join internationally recognized authors and speakers Homa Tavangar and Will Richardson for this exciting presentation as they identify the new, required lenses that all educators must now bring to their work.
