The goal of this edWebinar is to help educators start the work of equitable practices through more access, choice, and time—encouraging all students to be seen and heard while having multiple opportunities for biased free learning.
During this edWebinar, we will draw directly from high-stakes assessment questions to discuss methods for engaging students from across cultural and socio-economic backgrounds while accelerating assessment outcomes.
Discussing and developing equity strategies can lead to significant improvements in student performance, and as Dr. Tyrone Howard of UCLA explained during a recent edWebinar sponsored International Center for Leadership in Education, starting the process by looking at data on both students and teachers is a crucial first step toward mutual understanding and effective solutions.
In this edWebinar, we will explore a variety of policies and practices that aim to address the foundational challenges of achieving educational equity in the United States. We will also highlight ways educators can address equity in their school systems.
Join this edWebinar to make sense of strategies to facilitate small groups effectively in mathematics to ensure more equitable practices.
Students miss a school day now and then. They get sick, have a doctor’s appointment, or get caught up in a family emergency. These are among common excused absences that don’t usually affect a student’s academic standing. But chronic absenteeism—missing 10% or more of school—is an equity epidemic with short- and long-term impacts on student performance. Each year, almost eight million students are chronically absent for complex reasons.
The AEM Center will provide resources and guidance during this edWebinar, and will be available for free technical assistance as educators navigate eLearning Days now and in the weeks ahead.
The goal of digital equity is to ensure that all students have access to devices, high-speed internet, and opportunities to learn both in school and out. While digital equity is a challenge for all school districts, Dr. Beth Holland, Digital Equity and Rural Project Director for the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), points out that it becomes a very complex issue given the challenges within rural schools and systems. In a recent edWebinar, Holland along with Jennifer Austin, CETL, Instructional Technology Coordinator at Lac du Flambeau Public School in Wisconsin, Michael Flood, Vice President of Strategy at Kajeet, and Tammy Neil, Computer Science Teacher at Suwannee Middle School in Florida, discuss the unique challenges rural districts face when providing students’ online access to their education. Flood explained that when students don’t have equal access to devices and high-speed internet, it prevents them from having the same kinds of learning opportunities as their more connected peers.
This edWebinar will explore ways in which school districts can accelerate learning and ensure literacy success for English Language Learners in ELA and other content areas.
