About the Course

In this month's GenWise ADDA (on Sat, 19 Dec, 2-3 pm) we will be hearing from Middle/High school students on how their learning has had to change during the pandemic. They have all had to move their classes online and have had to cope and adapt to the new context. 


This is part of a series of Education ADDAs hosted by GenWise, targeted at parents/ teachers. We decided it was high time we heard from students too. This ADDA is the first of what we hope will be other opportunities to get the students' perspectives on education. 


The session with be facilitated by a GenWise mentor, and we will be hearing from 4-5 students.


Join us on Saturday (19 Dec) 2-3 pm. 


Registration is a must prior to event. All registered participants will receive the Zoom link for the session 24 hours prior to event.
