As of March 29, 2020, school closures due to COVID-19 have impacted at least 124,000 U.S. public and private schools and affected at least 55.1 million students, according to Education Week. In a recent edWebinar, Dr. Justin Aglio, Director of Academic Achievement and District Innovation, Montour School District, PA, expressed that while we have prepared for school closures due to weather and disasters, school districts have found themselves in an unprecedented reality.
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.
In this edWebinar, participants will learn about what a strong foundation in reading, sounds, and text looks like for early learners.
During this edWebinar, Dr. Justin Aglio will lead a conversation about the current state of EdTech and how educational leaders can help their schools move forward into the future.
This edWebinar will cover accommodations that support personalized learning and maximizing large group, small group, 1:1, and independent work so all students have access to learning growth.
In this edWebinar for school and district leaders, we’ll explore learning models that support personalized learning and increase learner agency.
According to Learning in the 21st Century: the 2019 Digital Promise LVP Survey, 83% of teachers think students are capable of high achievement, but just 26% think students are reaching those levels today. As part of the Learner Variability Project, which “seek[s] to uncover strategies to meet learners where they are across varied contexts and needs,” Digital Promise’s team is examining the key factors for different grades and subject levels that impact student learning. During the edWebinar, “Learning in the 21st Century: What Teachers Think Matters,” the presenters talked about the science of individuality, how they’re using the research to help developers create products to meet these individual needs, and examples that show how the Learner Variability Project can work in the classroom.
This edWebinar will highlight key findings from the survey that focused on learner variability, tailored instruction, use of edtech at school and home, and what informs teacher practice.
Teachers from previous decades may have focused on “What did I teach?” but the new focus is “What did the students learn?” Whether classroom resources are digital or not, educators can collect data every day to inform their instruction. In the presentation “Authentic Learning Starts with Informed Instruction” Michael Haggen, Chief Academic Officer at Scholastic Education, and Suzanne Lucas, Vice President of Product Marketing for Scholastic Education Digital Solutions, discussed how teachers can use formal and informal data to guide ELA lessons and make sure all students are receiving the education they need.
In this edWebinar, you will deepen your understanding of executive function skills and how you can help your students learn and apply them to meet their goals.
