The new normal – what needs to be different than before?

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?
