ORGANIZERS: Re.school and Global School Alliance (GSA)

The Re.school GSA Forum 2021 will bring together some of the brightest minds in education and best practices. The forum organizers have combined keynote presentations with roundtables and interviews to address the major structural issues of the new educational paradigm. Questions addressed in the forum will be:

  • Which skills and competencies do our students need to develop for the future?
  • How can we evaluate these skills objectively?
  • What teaching and learning methodologies do we have available to us to improve learning outcomes?
  • What type of teacher training is required to facilitate these changes?

The pandemic has taught us that not only students must learn to adapt to new learning environments, but also their teachers need to make extra efforts to learn and implement new systems to support such learning environments. According to Re.school's recent survey results, 91% of teachers are under more stress now than post-pandemic and only 53% of teachers said they do not have enough tools and training to promote digital skills in their classroom. Approximately 61% of the survey participants felt sufficiently supported and prepared by the management of their school even though all recognized the benefits that digital learning resources bring, especially to those students with special needs.

One striking point revealed by the survey encompassed how the elements considered most important by schools did not coincide with the priorities of the schools' teachers. And, when asked about school drop-outs, practically all participants responded that they consider that this issue should be a priority for governments.

In addition to survey results, the Re.school GSA Forum 2021 will cover other such topics as:

  • the idea of a SMART school
  • student language proficiency concerns, which is considered a deficiency by a very high percentage of the teachers surveyed
  • the student evaluation assessment of 21st century skills
  • opportunities for teacher training
