Welcome to the first episode of our ‘Learning From Home’ series. We’re joined by Sonia Benavides, architect and mother of 4 from Mexico. This interview took place at the beginning of April 2020 - facts and figures are not currently up to date.

We are launching a new section to the website with more resources and interviews. This will be a platform designed to give you a chance to contribute your story of education during the pandemic, as well as find resources to help you through this difficult time and beyond.


The Call to Unite

Earlier this week I joined the Call to Unite - a 24 hour global live stream event where I shared my thoughts on how we can seize the opportunity to transform how we educate our children, and how we approach our relationship with the world we live in.

NEW Podcast/Video Series: Learning from Home

Millions of parents and carers have suddenly found themselves responsible for overseeing their children’s education from home.

If you’re one of them, you may be finding this a daunting challenge to be facing on top of all of the other stresses of our current global situation. I am launching a podcast special to help bring you and your family resources and insight from around the world, and to give you the opportunity to share what is happening with your own family so that others can benefit from your experiences. No matter how isolated you may be feeling, the support you need is out there and my hope is that this podcast will connect you to it.

Please watch the video above to learn more, and then I invite you to be in touch with your stories, questions, concerns or insights by emailing LFH@nevergrey.org. With your permission some of these may be featured in the series and I may be in touch to arrange an interview so that we can share and exchange ideas.


Dear Teacher

The first day of school is a big day for your child and for you. I hope you enjoy my reading of this lovely poem by Emma Robinson, beautifully animated (as always) by We are Cognitive.

About #EducationStorytelling
-----------------------------------------------
This year, the Yidan Prize (www.yidanprize.org) has launched its first #EducationStorytelling campaign, in which thought leaders and educators from all over the world are invited to submit short videos, highlighting their education journey – aiming to inspire others and promote life-long learning.

The #EducationStorytelling campaign was launched on 6 November 2018 by the Yidan Prize founder, Dr Charles CHEN Yidan, through official Yidan Prize social media accounts. Dr CHEN shared his education story in a short video and invited two other thought leaders to join him in telling their stories. They were Ms Julia GILLARD and Mr Jimmy CARTER.

In the second stage of the campaign, the Yidan Prize Foundation’s digital team reached out to selected education thought leaders from around the world, inviting them to join the campaign and share their stories. Each nominee passed the baton on to two others and now we are thrilled to see that the general public has also joined the campaign.
