“It’s bad, but we can fix it.” The words of sustainability scientist and Lund University Professor Kimberly Nicholas. The optimist in me aligns to this view, but decades of experience in change management is less optimistic. The old phrase hands up who wants change (everyone), hands up who wants to change (nobody) comes to mind. The way I see it, time is running out for humans unless we change radically and faster. That’s not something I ever expected to think. I’m less concerned about the planet itself because the planet will go on, but for humans it’s far less certain. The scenarios arising from the climate crisis paint a bleak picture. Food shortages, sea levels rising, increasingly extreme weather, famine, species extinction and so on. In my view as this plays out it will increase the likelihood of civil unrest and war unless we change faster and more radically. Do I think we can do it? I do. As Professor Nicholas stated, we can fix it, but experience would suggest we may need to be forced to.
For educators across the country having access to flexible, untethered and trusted technology to support learning whatever disruption the pandemic may cause has been essential and at Edwards Hall Primary School it was Chromebooks that during the challenges of the past year made life a little easier.
