|The chapters draw together academic research and insights into the practical work being done to protect and enrich children's lives. How are students and teachers shaping new modes of learning? What kinds of stories are most successful in communicating with children about the pandemic? What should be the priorities of education during this period of change and in the long term? This book is part of a mini-series that explores the effects of COVID-19 on children’s education, rights and participation. These books will expose and connect the struggles faced by particularly vulnerable children, including children with disabilities, housing-distressed children, and refugee and displaced children. They will explore how best to listen to and support children in diverse situations, in order to enable them to realise their rights more effectively. Ruby Turok-Squire is studying for the Graduate Diploma in Law at City, University of London, UK.
“This is an important book illustrated throughout with powerful threads of thinking relating to the pandemic. We hear of ways to make sense of the chaos narrative with storytelling, of crisis pedagogies, of emergency children’s literature and of inspirational projects designed to reinvigorate learner curiosity. A highly recommended read.” — Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive of the Chartered College of Teaching, UK. “A much needed book, detailing a range of projects which place children’s and families’ voices centrally in the stories of adaptation during the pandemic. The authors have disrupted the common COVID-19 narrative of victimhood and powerlessness, instead demonstrating how partnership, purpose, and power shifts can open the world to all.” — Charlotte Haines Lyon, Senior Lecturer, York St John University, UK. This book investigates how education in the Global North is adapting during the COVID-19 pandemic.
