We have seen medicine and technology advance by leaps and bounds in the last six months - who would have thought that buying cars from a vending machine would have taken off! The evolution of the education system has been equally dramatic. The logistics and safety changes have forced us, and given us an opportunity, to rethink how we’ve “always done it.” Today we will talk to Erin Girard, a teacher and Class Quality Specialist at Outschool, an online education provider, about the evolution in the educational system in the last five years, the growth spurt provoked by COVID, what’s to come in the next five, and what this all means for teachers and schools.
