Webinar Series – School Post-Lockdown. Why? What? How?

Come July, the new normal for education will require us to reboot all we’ve known about school education: An engaging classroom, buzzing corridors, and in-person teacher-student communication.

While everybody seems to associate virtual learning with the new normal, it certainly isn’t the whole story of education. Virtual learning has become a key element of learning, but there are other facets to pay attention to while defining the new normal.

We conducted 3 sessions with industry experts to find answers to the WHAT? WHY? and HOW? of schools reopening.
