Following the keynote, three guests introduced their new projects. The first was Mr. Alex Dutson, who participated from his home in the UK.
On Thursday April 23rd, the 21st Century Education Organization’s regular meeting was held online. Since we weren’t sure how long schools would be closed, we asked about fifty teachers from member schools to join us, and share their responses on behalf of their schools, as most take part in online learning.
Taking advantage of being online, guests from both London and Los Angeles presented at this regular meeting. They introduced their proposals for new projects, and I was inspired by this to think of future methods of learning, in a post-Corona era.
We utilized Zoom breakout sessions as well during our meeting. In six of our sessions, teachers relayed the information presented to their schools, and received great enthusiasm of moving on to the next stage. It was an opportunity to reaffirm that the 21st Century Education Institute's school is a world-class school that can adapt and respond in a time of crisis.
The meeting lasted for about two and a half hours beyond the scheduled time. Since it was decided that participation would be from the comfort of our homes, it was a regular meeting which included consideration for the health of our attendees.
