As Difficult As It Is To Implement Change In The Conventional Learning Environment, Kenya Brooks is Championing a Breakthrough for Kids, Teachers, and Parents

Sometimes change is unexpected. We all know this, especially with the recent change we all have encountered: the Covid-19 pandemic. Whenever a change happens, if you want to remain effective you have to become flexible and adapt to the change. This seems to be the most viable stance for the players in the education field after the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted learning as we have been used to it for a very long time. Since there is no cure for the virus yet, it seems inevitable that the only way for the education field to continue is by embracing a new normal.

It is, therefore, encouraging and refreshing to see passionate education champions such as Kenya Brooks taking to the forefront almost immediately. She is not just championing for a breakthrough for kids, parents, and teachers, but she also offers tangible solutions into how that breakthrough can be achieved. This season of the pandemic calls for the different players in the education sector to come together to figure out how we can all come together to support each other. Kenya Brooks is one such individual who has been having these conversations and continues to do so.

 Kenya Brook has given voice to the well being of the education sector. This has not just been with words, but also through her software development and participation in the formulation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). This ensures that all students have equal access to quality education in America. Now, a number of roundtable discussions with influential persons on the well being of the education field in America and around the globe are trying to figure out how to continue providing equal access even amidst a pandemic. Ultimately, the goal is to ensure the student is not clipped academically by the partial paralysis caused by the pandemic but continues to thrive and hit brilliant academic milestones.

The Future Belongs Not Just To Those Who Prepare And Plan

What is the future of the education sector? This COVID-19 pandemic will either improve, stagnate or deteriorate the education field and this is entirely dependent not on the magnitude of the pandemic but on the response of the players in the education field. The pandemic can leave the education bitter or better; we have to choose. So what should the different players do? For starters, each must acknowledge that they have a role to play. Two, each player must intentionally ask themselves, what change must I embrace for the greater good of the student and how can I be part of that change? The question of change is very important because at the moment change is inevitable. Then each player must be intentional about doing their part. It is not enough to just dream of things to go back to “normal”. Instead, they must prepare and plan for the worst and make something positive out of it. 

Embrace Technology to the Fullest

One of the changes parents, teachers, and students must be ready for is technological change. This is solidified by the fact that most learning if not all, has been transferred to online/virtual at the moment. With the closure of schools and ban on public gatherings, schools have now resorted to online learning for their students as a regulatory, precautionary, and survival measure. No school wants their students left behind and no school wants to be on the wrong side of the government or the deadly virus. Lives are at stake, but also that does not mean that the learning should stop. 

In this resolve too, Kenya Brook is not just giving an opinion on what needs to be done but she offers a brilliant solution through her software company. Established in 2015, J Soft Technology develops software that makes it easier for students to study online with the same ease of a classroom. How timely! Kenya’s company has specifically developed software materials that are student-friendly, including ILikeMath among others, and has made it available to students both in America and around the globe. 

Kenya Brook’s drive is admirable and encouraging. She is committed to ensure her voice is heard and the technological impact is felt by students around America and the globe.  It is also admirable how she seeks to bring together the different players in the education and build them up with her wisdom at a time when that wisdom is very much needed. One can only anticipate the wonderful fruits her selfless efforts will bear even in generations to come.
