“It’s like pushing a square block up a steep hill” Larry Nelson shares, in reference to the difficult journey the education industry was on when it came to technological change. But with the pandemic, online learning went from ‘just-in-case’ to absolutely necessary. How can educational institutions around the world be empowered to service learners even when they are not face-to-face?
Schools that had invested in platforms prior were in better shape and could offer more learning, both interactive and content-rich materials, for their students to drive immersive video conferencing. As schools move from reactionary to thinking about the sustainability of technological tools employed, achieving inclusivity and focusing on the human factor is key as well.
