The Big Think: The evolving role of online in international schools
Presenter(s): Chris Colyer, Gavin Boyle
The evolving role of online in international schools
How is online education changing the shape of schooling, and how this will continue to evolve over the coming decade?
As we move beyond emergency online schooling and into the new normal in 2022, it's clear that the role of online learning has changed, but how will it continue to change and evolve in the future?
In this webinar, presented by Chris Colyer, resident futurist in Pearson’s international Virtual Schools division and with insights from Gavin Boyle, Director of Learning at St Christopher's School, Bahrain, we will examine what pioneering international schools are doing today in the online schooling space and ask how online schools are managing to achieve results that rival bricks and mortar institutions. We will share the areas that online schools excel at and show you how you can bring those into your physical school.
We will then cast ahead to 2030 to consider what schools in the near future might look like, and what role online will play in schools then. Finally, we’ll consider how some of the fundamentals of schooling could be changing – and how you can prepare your school for these changes today.
By attending this webinar, delegates will:
- Understand the benefits that online can bring to education
- Understand how online education is changing the shape of schooling, and how this will continue to evolve over the coming decade.
- Understand how schools are applying the benefits of online schooling today and building towards a more fluid future state of learning.
