Consolidate only value added learning tools into one platform for truly online learning
Tell us about your idea
The public school system should assign a task force to gather insights and design the right content, supporting tools and overall process under one platform to give children a true learning impactful experience in a remote environment. Today, children have to jump (parents end up doing the logistics for the little ones to access the right platform) from one platform to another to do assignments. Some of the tools are dated and the content is not even relevant. I think this is also an opportunity for teachers to revisit curriculum and how that is taught.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I am a process improvement and implementation consultant. I have been supporting the Teaching Team as an AC within IdeoU for the last 2/3 years. I have learned how to approach change challenges as a designer and with the user at the heart of the process. This health crisis has made crystal clear that children are not at the center of the school system design process. Public schools have proven to be dated. IMO they should give way to magnet, charters, private only. Public schools are too heavy in admin, they've lost their purpose. I think it is an uphill battle trying to improve them. We need a whole new educational model with private sector and SMEs involvement.
