Coronavirus: A new reality for education
The leading educationalist and Chair of Cognita’s Education Advisory Board, Sir Kevan Collins, gave his views on how education will look and feel after lockdown in our latest Challenging Education podcast. Listen on iTunes, Spotify or wherever you like to access podcasts.
In discussion with Simon Camby and Beth Kerr, Sir Kevan considered the positive change that could result from these most challenging of times. He said: “I think you’re going to see a much more ‘test and learn’ culture in education, run and directed by teachers themselves. And I think you could even move to simulated classrooms where people can test out what they’re doing, vary their teaching…so I’m hoping you’ll see a much more dynamic and exciting way of thinking about teacher development.”
