Due to COVID-19 pandemic more than 90% of world’s students have been or are still under lock down and within the ASPnet, currently 95% of schools are closed. Despite this, students are trying to continue teaching and learning remotely with the use of ICT, oftentimes with the help of parents.

Many counties are slowly preparing to get back to normal life, but before doing so, the evaluation and analysis of remote learning experience are required. Many stakeholders question: How effective has the experience of remote learning been? What opportunities and challenges does it bear? How has it shaped and possibly changed the learning community and relationships between students – teachers – parents? Finally, how do we reimagine the organization of our schools and learning environments following this crisis?

The UNESCO ASPnet International Coordination team would like to invite all its members – National Coordinators, teachers, students and their parents – to come together as a global community, to share and explore observations, feelings and initial lessons learned on the experience of remote learning, and reimagining the future of education based on this experience.

The main language used during the webinar will be English (since no reliable means for simultaneous translation is available). Questions and comments via chat can be shared in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. Technical guidance will be shared with registered participants ahead of the webinar.
