K-12 education looks completely different today than it did two months ago. Every district and school has had to rapidly adjust to digital, at-home learning to continue education. The pace, tools, and resources available for making this change differ from state to state and school to school.
Dr. Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow, has been talking to parents, students, and educators about the impacts of going digital and the findings are alarming. Watch this edWebinar to hear her findings from schools across the country.
We also share 10 action-oriented tips for how to make the transition to a digital classroom from former teacher Chris O’Neal.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, curriculum leaders, special ed leaders, IT leaders, and superintendents.
