Digital Learning and Teaching Links (weekly)

  • In April 2020, WISE launched the Education Disrupted, Education Reimagined virtual convening series in partnership with Salzburg Global Seminar on the impact of COVID-19 on global education. Interest in the series has far exceeded expectations, with events in April and June bringing together more than 3,000 participants from 98 countries, with thousands also participating via social media. The third and final online symposium will take place in September. To help capture the immense momentum these events have generated within the WISE global community, WISE will publish a special edition e-book, titled Education Disrupted, Education Reimagined: Thoughts and Responses from Education’s Frontline During the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond. The book will be released in parts throughout July, August, and September 2020.

Since February 2020, an unprecedented number of teachers, students, and parents have become exposed to a new mode of teaching. Teachers did not have the luxury of options, as online education came towards them, shouting “Ready or not, here I come!” The transformation is deep and wide: All levels of teaching, from pre-k classes to doctoral programs, moved to the cloud. Every discipline, from physics to physical education, from chemistry to creative writing, has a chance to test their limits and potentials in the new modality of teaching.
