What are some ways in which we might hear stakeholders’ voices and discover how they are responding to learning during this crisis? How might those discoveries shift our ways of thinking about how we design for learning?
I think it would be especially interesting to help students internationally interact with one another around this unique shared experience. What insights have they gathered about their own learning and what new interests they have discovered? Are there structures to help them connect?
The present reality affords us the opportunity to tap the perspectives of students, parents, and teachers related to their experiences with remote learning. If we could agree on 1-2 key questions for each stakeholder group we may be able to use what we learn from all these groups to inform decisions and actions moving forward. The mere act of soliciting such input would communicate that we care about these different perspectives and that we acknowledge that they are equally valuable.
