Wed, May 13, 2020, 7:00 PM (BST)

About this event


The world is currently united in confronting the consequences of COVID-19. For students, parents, and educators around the world, an immediate challenge is how to adapt to learning from home. OpenIDEO aims to respond to these new needs of educators and families, while also reimagining more equitable and resilient learning systems for the future.

You can access the event on Zoom with this link - please arrive at 6.45pm for a prompt 7pm start.

Why are we running this session?

Join us for this two hour online ideation session to share and spotlight the best examples of creativity and resourcefulness among educators and families, so every learning community has a chance to emerge from this better than it entered.

The Challenge Question

How might we help educators, parents, and students adapt to remote learning while also using this moment to radically reimagine what we need our education systems to be?

What can you do?

We’re looking to explore insight and collaborative ideas from those who are impacted most by school closures: parents/caregivers, students and educators. Help us imagine how we can reshape schools and learning post-COVID.

Further details and the agenda will be released closer to the date.
