AMCHAM Partner Event: Education Disrupted – Finding New Models for Schools
The temporary closure of schools brought on by Covid-19 has highlighted the fragility of many traditional school systems. In a few short months, parents have started to make different cost-benefit analyses and students are considering alternatives to traditional education that they never would have considered before.
But with this widescale disruption comes the opportunity to rethink curricula and make fundamental adjustments to what schooling looks like today and in the future.
Join AMCHAM for an interactive video conference on the breakdown of the education system and the ‘new dream’ for schooling. In addition to discussing how the pandemic is transforming the global educational system, our speakers will address the future of schools, and the potential value of high-quality online models, innovative hybrid-models, and a break away from the traditional chronological systems.
