SYN Radio Interview
- COVID-19 has undoubtedly had a profound impact on the education sector including how and what content is taught to students. I was invited to share my thoughts and experiences on SYN’s 90.7 ‘drive programme,’ Amplify, which is produced and presented by under-18s alongside the Youth Board Member at the VCAA, Aayushi Khillan, and Program Manager at Primary Connections, Nicola Dziadkiewicz.
- We looked at what the assessment authority had done throughout the pandemic to support students in achieving their VCE, as well as how educators had to adapt in response to the ever-changing situation, discussing issues such as equity and what we can learn to help shape how the curriculum is delivered in the future.
