What will schooling look like post-pandemic? The term “the new normal” is used a lot these days as a result of life changes brought about by the 2020 pandemic. Individuals as well as our national society have demonstrated flexibility and cooperation. The pandemic has given rise to remote learning which may increasingly become part of the “new normal” for teachers and students. Learning from the successes and mishaps of remote learning during the 2020 pandemic can be an asset to all teachers if we focus on the benefits of remote instruction and alleviate the detriments of it.
