Future-Proofing Students For The 21st Century

With COVID-19, most of us had to learn to adapt our daily routines quite quickly. For students, this meant moving their classrooms to online spaces, utilising technology like Zoom and Google Classrooms. A recent report entitled, “ Future-Proofing Students: What they need to know and how educators can assess and credential them”  by the Melbourne Graduate School of Education, suggests that this move could serve as an opportunity to reshape the way in which students are assessed. 

We spoke with Sandra Milligan. Sandra led the research of this report as well as an Enterprise Professor at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education.
