Responding to student needs in a dynamic and responsive way is more important than ever. Through Covid’s agenda, educators have promised that every child in our school will experience a personal level of success. Whether you’re learning in a virtual environment or having a meeting in the classroom, students and teachers continue to develop new skills and ideas for growth. Above all, we all learned the importance of kindness and created a safe haven for students and teachers to stay at their best.

Manager, Learning 365
What we have learned over the last two years is that education needs to be done spontaneously, organically and regardless of location. Learning is not the responsibility of one teacher in the classroom, but the collective duty of all members of the family, institution, and community. Children’s education is not the result of carefully planned curriculum and learning outcomes, but the result of true intentional opportunities to explore the world around them and provocations to tackle complex challenges.
Covid provided the educational community with the opportunity and catalyst to rethink the traditional educational paradigm and deliberately and reliably meet the needs of all learners.

The roles of parents, students and schools are integrated and mutually complete. Because we are working together to eliminate educational challenges.

In celebrating International Day of Education in 2022, I asked my fellow learning leaders to see the current challenges and ask, “What is the purpose for our students to be involved and committed?” We encourage you to start considering their agenda with the simple question. I believe that the loss of learning caused by the disruption of school customs encourages education leaders to adjust their curriculum, assessment goals and perhaps engage in more comprehensive reforms. We also encourage Ed-Tech companies to provide solutions for specific alternatives to traditional approaches to education and learning.
However, the only trend that has the potential to sustain future turmoil is to focus on developing learning skills and key abilities from an early age. Focusing on conceptual understanding and collaborative assessment, students develop the ability to lead and manage their learning. -Building a genuine learning experience by attracting students and parents continues to be a common feature of all successful educational frameworks and schools in my view.The first step to success is to (re) define
Invest in building teacher roles and leadership skills.

I think we should use everything we have learned from our experience in online education to challenge our assumptions and advance us.
Education program. I don’t think education should return to its pre-Covid state. The flexibility, options, and collaboration tools offered by online learning can significantly enhance results, lifestyle, and personalized programs at a basic level.
However, keep in mind that we do not overlook the ultimate intention of increasing student involvement and participation, and focus only on getting everyone to learn the same way due to technology limitations and safety issues. The ultimate goal is to empower students, parents and educators. It provides many ways to learn and work.

This required additional creative efforts by teachers and professionals to provide an effective learning environment. It is very important to recognize the special efforts teachers have made to address the challenges presented in order to ensure the continuity of the education of the students.
Over the last two years, we have learned the importance of emotional balance for both teachers and students and recognized the importance of interactive education that has been offered before the pandemic. This aspect of education is essential to continuing the learning process and building experience and skills. Therefore, the current situation is an opportunity to rethink our teaching methodologies and how we interact with students. While we have technology, we also recognize the importance of an educational environment in which teachers, school colleagues, and the school community play an important role in building student personality, a balanced personality.

Awsaj Academy Director
Two years later, there is a growing sense that some changes may continue, and rethinking is underway. This is an opportunity to rethink what the school will look like. The situation around us is changing in an unprecedented way, and we are beginning to see ways to build different kinds of relationships between students and learning, parents and teachers, schools, and the international community.
This is the moment to rethink our future together and consider how education progresses towards a model that provides students with the best face-to-face learning enhanced by the most effective use of various technologies. is. It supports personalized learning development and rethinks and reconstructs educational models that incorporate disruptive education.
Covid-19 has raised many challenges, but educators around the world have proven that they are resilient, adaptable and deeply committed to student learning. Find strength and inspiration in your connections.

Lenado Academy Special Education Teacher
This pandemic has forced rapid changes so that students can continue to engage in learning. Since then, both students and teachers are expected to attend classes online and manage their path through many platforms. Distance learning, previously available primarily to adults in pursuit of further education, is now practiced with the youngest learners.Nevertheless
There is technology that appreciates making this possible. You need to know that not all learners respond to distance learning.
As a special education teacher working with children with autism, I expected to challenge this. However, Renad Academy provided students with virtual classrooms and online classes to ensure the availability of home folders with weekly physical resources available.
It was difficult this time, but with the cooperation of my parents and caregivers, I was able to achieve positive results. This made me realize the importance of trusting the time needed to adapt to change. Even if that seems impossible, we have found a way to make it possible!
