Notes

Abstract: All over the world teaching and learning transitioned to forms of online education due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In this contribution, we recognize challenges that this disruptive change brought about for teachers and learners. We reflect on these challenges, based on discussions at EDUsummIT2019 in Quebec about the theme “Learners and learning contexts: New alignments for the digital age”. Informed by theoretical conceptualization and empirical evidence we identify micro-meso-macro alignments that need to be in place to move education into the digital age: alignments for quality learning contexts, alignments in support for teachers, and alignments through partnerships.

Nous réfléchissonsà cesdéfis, sur la base des discussions qui ont eu lieu lors de l'EDUsummIT2019 au Québec sur le thème "Apprenant·e·s et contextes d'apprentissage : De nouveaux alignements pour l'ère numérique ". Sur la base d’uneconceptualisation théorique et des preuves empiriques, les alignements micro-méso-macro à être mis en place pour faire passer l'éducation à l'ère numérique sont repérés:alignements pour des contextes d'apprentissage de qualité, alignements concernantle soutien aux enseignant·e·s et alignements au moyende partenariats.
