Reimagine learning challenge

Education looks very different right now as classrooms worldwide remain shut due to COVID-19. Thanks to technology and innovation though, online learning platforms are helping to fill the gap – for countries with reliable internet access.

But how might this new reality impact the future of learning? The Reimagine Learning Challenge – from openIDEO – is asking innovators to explore this. Both in terms of building flexible systems that can work right now – and beyond the pandemic, thinking about what the world of education should look like.

“How might we help educators, parents, and students adapt to remote learning while also using this moment to radically reimagine what we need our education systems to be?,” the Challenge website states.
