What will we learn about education from this pandemic? Learn today with Angela in Morocco on Teaching Hive Mind: A Worldwide Window into Education
Teachers are busy. That should be news to no teacher reading this. However, because we are so busy, we often only see teaching as what WE are doing in our own school in our own area. We forget that there are so many teachers teaching in other parts of the world, in other circumstances, in other ways. For a long time I have wanted to help us as teachers connect with each other, to learn from what is happening in different schools around the world. Then COVID happened and the differences between areas became more and more apparent. So I have reached out to some teacher friends and put together a series called Teaching Hive Mind: A Worldwide Window into Education.
For each episode in this series, I will be interviewing an educator from a different area on what teaching looks like in their area, and how their area is responding to the COVID pandemic. Today I am releasing Episode 1: An Interview with Angela in Morocco on How Education is Changing During this Pandemic.
For this episode, I spoke with my friend Angela, who I had taught with in Morocco 9 years ago. Angela is a teacher and administrator in Morocco. The international school she taught at last year taught live lessons from day one of the pandemic and the French Moroccan school she has now switched to has been teaching virtually this school year. She is now preparing for a hybrid of some students coming back face to face and other students attending from home.
Angela and I discussed the trends towards virtual only learning, and how her own daughter is achieving her goals this way. We also discussed the inequities that this pandemic has uncovered and how extreme they can be in Morocco. Additionally, Angela gave us a clear picture of what education looks like at her school.
