Good morning, good afternoon and good evening to you,

Dear students, teachers, parents and friends of ASPnet,

My name is Melanie Seto, I am part of the Global Coordination Team of ASPnet. Among other things I coordinate the "CONNECT" newsletter.

I want to congratulate all of you for the amazingly successful global ASPnet webinar that took place on 12 May.

The success is all yours, your voices, experiences, and personal contributions made the webinar a true community meeting! I am very impressed by your resilience, creativity and energy with which you are facing the challenges to learning in the current pandemic!

I am happy and proud to be part of this community and the Global Coordination team, and believe that we can overcome the many common challenges for learning and education through mutual support and encouragement, which was proven in the webinar.

I echo the believe and commitment that the current crisis is an immense opportunity to make changes for education, some of which are long overdue to emerge with a clear vision on the kind of learning we want, that is more inclusive, flexible and adapted to every learner.

Let's continue this exchange, staying connected. It was a great honour to meet you all at the webinar, and look forward to meeting you again soon, whether virtual or in person.​

See you soon!
