What if that word ‘challenged’ was seen as an opportunity for growth and reflection, instead of the negative connotations we sometimes associate with this word? Has this period provided us with a catalyst to spring forward into the future, at perhaps a slightly faster pace? Have Virtual School Experiences challenged us to be more agile and enabled us to provide more flexible learning opportunities? Yes, they have; for now, and for the future. It’s important that we continue to think about how to evolve education and combine it with the learning opportunities available to us through Nord Anglia Education, to provide the best possible educational provision for our students.
If there is one key thing that motivates us as educators, it is to ensure that we are preparing students for their future as well as the next stage of their journey, whether that be IGCSE, IBDP or university. We are conscious that the future might, at times, feel uncertain, but we should be using this as an opportunity to harness the skills we have developed over this recent period of uncertainty, to help prepare us for this future. Making technology the centrepiece of our Virtual School enables students to develop skills they may not have previously been afforded.
