CAN INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES FOR EDUCATION RAISED BY THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC?

Florin Bonciu

Romanian Economic Business Review, 2021, vol. 16, issue 3, 7-17

Abstract: The paper stresses the permanent relation between the evolution of innovation and technology and education pointing out to the increasing need for a substantial / fundamental change in education that has been manifested before the Covid-19 crisis. Against this background, the Covid-19 pandemic and its consequences (such as social distancing, lock downs, limitations or banning of international travel) have raised serious challenges to the education process at all levels but also to other related processes such as lifelong learning, up-skilling, and re-skilling. The pandemic also exacerbated the inequality issues, the digital divide, and the lack of proper skills for delivering large scale online course from the part of professors themselves. The paper explores several ways in which innovation and technology may help in overcoming these challenges and draws some lessons from the 2020 experience.
