“COVID Has Increased the Digital Imperative When it Comes to Online Learning. It’s Brought It Front and Center.”

No doubt about it: COVID has educated us. The pandemic has taught the educational ecosystem—students, parents, teachers, administrators, publishers—to review our educational tools and systems and say, “These could be better!” The big question is: How? To begin answering it, we spoke with two men who are deeply enmeshed in questions of EdTech. Our latest episode of Silo Busting features Kevin Labick, our SVP of Digital Engagement, and Dmitry Krasovskiy, our Head of Education & Learning, who are both present and ready with some A+ answers to producer Ken Gordon’s queries. Together they talk about how education, traditionally a B2B2C business model, is no more. “That broke when learning [went] virtual, en masse,” says Labick. For educational publishers and content creators, this means a focus on the leaners, and when end users become buyers, Krasovskiy says, “You need to change the way you approach product building and product implementation.” Take a seat in the virtual classroom of this episode and you’ll learn about the part design thinking plays here, the competencies educational publishers must take on, and even the future roles educators might play in our digital future.
