They’ll be discussing a range of topics, the first of which will be “The new normal of teaching and learning”. In this segment, panellists will talk about whether the enforced shift to remote learning online will change the way they teach in the future – and whether the curriculum should be reviewed in light of this. They’ll also examine how schools can support staff and students’ wellbeing remotely.
The second section will be dedicated to schools’ digital strategies and how the pandemic has changed the way they work with edtech, as well as how they can best prepare themselves for a similar pattern of in-school and remote teaching and learning in the future.
The debate’s final chapter will see our speakers discussing the wider changes that recent events across the world will bring to the education sector.
With so many experienced people on our panel, the discussions are sure to be packed with valuable information, thoughts, tips and advice; this Big EdTech Debate is guaranteed to be a must-see!
