Covid-19 has impacted education around the world as it has forced schools to alter their physical, social and pedagogical educational framework. At Faber, we (an interdisciplinary and international team based in Denmark, Sweden, Belgium and Spain) will be discussing and comparing how schools in Catalonia, Denmark, Sweden and Belgium have adapted to this situation. How have schools changed physically and how did this affect educational and social practices? The aim of our project is to create knowledge from the current school situation during the pandemic that will benefit school development in the future.
