Online Learning and Returning to School after Lockdown: Lessons to be learnt from China
Schools in China closed in January after Chinese New Year. Chinese schools and international schools in China then adopted online learning to ensure a continuity of educational provision. Schools adapted quickly to unprecedented circumstances and in most cases switched seamlessly to online learning models, making use of Microsoft Teams, Zoom, ClassIn and the alike. Across most of China schools reopened at the end of March, and gradually reintegrated students back into school. Schools across the world can learn significantly from the precedents set in China, in terms of effective online learning and school reopening. Moreover, China schools have adopted stringent safety measures to ensure the health and safety of students and teachers.

The podcast considers many of the issues facing someone thinking of making their first move overseas including: The Pull Factors v The Push Factors. Where to go and why? The terms and conditions of employment; including Salary, Taxation, Insurance, Housing, and Gratuity.   The types of schools found in the international sector. Red Flags to look out for. I've worked for more than a decade in the international sector; in Botswana, Malawi, Zambia, France, Nigeria and France. I have had the most amazing journey full of joys and a plethora of wonderful experiences. I've also faced many challenges and frustrations, so one must seriously consider the pros and cons of making the move into the international arena.
