“Can the innovative educational changes imposed by the pandemic be sus-tained for the long-term?” That’s the question that Taeyeon Kim, Minseok Yang, and Sunbin Lim ask in the third commentary in a series launched by Corrie Stone-Johnson and the Journal of Educational Change. This question builds on the first commentary in that series by Yong Zhao and Jim Watterston – “The changes we need post-Covid” and the sec-ond “What can change in schools after the pandemic?” by Thomas Hatch. This week’s post provides an excerpt from the third commentary, highlight-ing they key lessons and implications from the pandemic experiences of ed-ucators in the Korean context. The full commentary can be found in the November issue of the Journal of Educational Change.
