“At home, there are children working completely on their own, and there are children who have access to a ton of support, and it’s not fair, it’s not equal and it’s not fair” (26:20).
Today on our podcast, we sat down with two teachers from the Toronto District School Board (TDSB), Katherine and Greg to discuss their experience with teaching remotely during the Covid-19 pandemic. Like many school boards, the TDSB has adapted by teaching on electronic platforms, which seems like a quick solution, however, for many children and their families, this transition has not been easy. Listen to hear our guests discuss the contemporary politics of teaching, internet insecurity and the determinants that e-learning can have on students whose families lack internet access, and how teaching during the pandemic has affected their method and style as educators.
