“No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” This quote by Dr. James P. Comer highlights the importance of strong teacher-student connections. In an edWeb edLeader Panel, sponsored by Intellispark, the presenters concurred with Comer that it is now even more critical to monitor student wellbeing and maintain healthy relationships.
With remote learning still at play, students now rely on virtual engagement with their teachers to have questions answered and assignments clarified. With the appropriate tools and tech access, instructional assistance from afar can be academically beneficial.
Educators will share how they go about engaging teachers in sustained social learning with mentors and peers.
Disruption in learning caused by COVID-19 is the reality that school districts face this school year. K-12 education is evolving from a brick-and-mortar learning environment to learning both in person and online. While this shift is challenging to say the least, it is an opportunity for school districts to use technology to engage, personalize, and challenge students. In an edWeb edLeader Panel sponsored by EveryDay Labs, Michael Romero, Local District South Superintendent, Los Angeles Unified School District CA, and Todd Rogers, Professor of Public Policy, Harvard University and Chief Scientist, EveryDay Labs, talk about actionable strategies to help create the conditions for learning this fall, including using attendance data, effective communication strategies, and building strong family-school partnerships.
