The new normal – what needs to be different than before?
UNESCO’s Futures of Education initiative is catalyzing a global debate on knowledge and learning. This animated video is the third of a series. Each episode will explore a single, important issue and invite users to offer their comments and ideas.
Here we ask viewers to think about how COVID-19 has made us reassess what we used to accept as “normal”. Indeed, for teachers, students, and humanity, this is an important opportunity to understand that what we have considered "normal" is not inevitable, but is a choice - a result of our decisions. What does this possibility mean for the futures of education?
Join the discussion! In your view, what are we learning from the coronavirus disruptions? What needs to be different than before?
