This Wednesday, May 13, from 1 to 2:30 pm (UTC), the IICBA invites you to attend the first of a serie of four webinars on transformational pedagogy, peace and resilience in times of global health crisis.

Date: Wednesday, 13 May, 2020
Time: 13h00 – 14h30 TU
Duration: 90 minutes

While the education sector has responded to school closures by setting up online learning spaces and other innovative practices to support home-schooling, half of all students of the world are currently out of the classroom without access to a computer, and more than 40% of children have no internet access at home.  Many children are being left behind with increasing disparities in access to education and learning, compromising their safety and well-being.

Education should respond to the needs of the learners, empower children to be resilient and equip them to cope with the context around them and positively respond to the challenges they face.

The pandemic can present opportunities to empower learners to meaningfully address some of the issues at hand. In fact, while COVID 19 has put pressure on the education and has left millions out of school, the pandemic has also shown our interconnectedness and the power of human solidarity.  Educators can build on this as a learning opportunity and support learners to strengthen their sense of belonging to a larger community and encourage active engagement for community transformation and for reaching out to the most vulnerable.

However, whereas the world rallies to meet the challenge posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, extremist groups including those from West Africa have continued to carry out large-scale attacks and conduct cross-border activities. There is a risk the current situation might undermine gains on peacebuilding and prevention of violent extremism including those made by the education sector.

How can the education sector and teachers as first-line responders support learners to cope with these challenges arising during and after the pandemic and the effects on their socio-emotional, mental and spiritual well-being?

This webinar will reflect on how educators can empower and transform learners responding to the emerging ethical demands in the era of COVID-19. This webinar is part of a learning module that UNESCO IICBA is offering for educators to support learners during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The objectives of the webinar are to:

  • Discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the educational needs of children and youth in Africa ;
  • Identify how the education sector and teachers as first-line responders can support learners to cope with and positively respond to the ethical challenges arising during and after the pandemic and its effects on children’s socio-emotional, mental and spiritual well-being ;
  • Provide recommendations for educators to continue addressing the needs for peace and resilience building and prevention of violent extremism in the current context.

When the schools re-open, it will be critical to provide dialogue opportunities for learners to share how they feel, their experiences, and reflect on what happened and on the ethical challenges their communities and the world are facing. It is equally important for schools to offer spaces for learners to imagine alternatives to contribute to transform their communities.
