THE NEW NORMAL: POST COVID-19 IS ABOUT CHANGE AND SUSTAINABILITY

  • Ebba Ossiannilsson

Abstract

During the Covid-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020, educational organizations around the world were closed suddenly, while education continued. In a time of digitalization and information technology, such emergencies are no excuse for halting continuous learning. It has become evident that the digital revolution concerns people and their habits, behaviors, and attitudes in using the new technology. This conceptual article is based on the current discourse on the “new normal” after Covid-19, which will be about change, reorientation, and sustainability. A sustainable society requires access to successful strategies, agile and flexible leadership, digital platforms, partnerships, and the ability to respond to rapid change, promote flexibility in learning, and support our students. Based on these aims, we can prepare for the UNESCO initiative, Futures of Education – Learning to Become.
