“When one teaches, two learn.” It is this dialogue, this two-way learning relationship, that also motivates us as teacher-educators. In our numerous Design Thinking workshops for teachers, not only do we teach, but we also learn. The discussions, activities, and worksheets are learning opportunities, not just for the participants, but for ourselves too.
With the recent spike in confirmed cases in the Philippines and the slew of school suspensions, we are just now trying to figure out how to deal with COVID-19. Social distancing remains to be the best way to combat the spread of the virus, so suspending school seems to be the sensible option, but its not the kind of disease that should compromise our learner’s growth and development. So how might we still continue delivering and ensuring that learning happens for our students?
