What it means for Sri Lanka?
The education system we knew was 200 years old with minimal revisions made to the curriculum. It is only now we understand the urgency for transformation. As Sri Lanka is gradually rolling-out a phased relaxation of lockdowns and lifting curfews, there is a narrow window of opportunity for
the Educators of Sri Lanka to redefine the educational system through the perspective of Curriculum studies. One such step is that during the period of social distancing, many educational Institutes in Sri Lanka are headed towards complete online modality or blended learning modality in instructions. Coincidentally, this blended learning is known as the “new normal” in the realm, of the education technology. Apart from that, the Education Ministry has decided to reschedule the G.C.E. Advanced Level Examination for October 2020 amidst the pandemic. Therefore, it is pretty much sure that Education sectors whatsoever won’t be derailed due to the outbreak.
