edWeb to Host SETDA eLearning Coalition to Support Online Learning
As school districts across the country face school closings, the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) is launching the SETDA Coalition for eLearning on edWeb.net. The SETDA Coalition for eLearning focuses state leaders, affiliates, and partners in collective action around teaching and learning in the digital age. edWeb will be hosting the new Essential Elements for eLearning community of practice and a series of edWebinars to help disseminate an ever-evolving compilation of rapidly developing resources around eLearning for state education agencies and school districts. The program is free thanks to support from AT&T Aspire.
The first edWebinar, Strategies for eLearning Days in the Wake of COVID-19, is airing live on Tuesday, March 17th with Candice Dodson, Executive Director of SETDA, and Stacey Schmidt, PhD, Superintendent of Porter Township School Corporation (IN), and will explore essential considerations and resources for state, district and school administrators and teachers as they prepare for eLearning Days in the wake of school closings related to the COVID-19 virus.
“In preparation for the likely disruption in learning from the COVID19 virus, it is essential that we collaborate to provide best practices and a framework to ensure students can continue learning away from brick and mortar schools,” said Candice Dodson, executive director of SETDA.
Lisa Schmucki, founder and CEO of edWeb commented, “We are so glad we could move quickly to help SETDA host such an important community of practice and series of edWebinars as part of our ongoing partnership together.”
