Across Borders: A Multi-Cultural Perspective on Responses to COVID-19
Editor’s note: Learning in the Time of Coronavirus is a multi-part video interview series where, in each episode, we interview folks with a unique perspective on how Covid-19 is affecting education across the world – and how we can keep learning in spite of it.
Mei Chen, Instructional Designer, born in China and making her life in America, talks to us about the differences between the Chinese response to the virus and the American response. She also lets us in on how she is using everyday objects to keep her (almost) 3-year-old daughter entertained and building the desire to learn.
