Now, more than ever, the world of EdTech is evolving quickly. It can be hard to keep track of it all. As many schools shift to distance learning, it’s important to take time to reflect on your school’s use of EdTech so far this school year and what new EdTech you want to implement in the coming year, as well as what you need to do in order to maximize your current EdTech investments to respond to students’ and teachers’ needs.

Join this edWebinar as Dr. Monica Burns, author of Tasks Before Apps and founder of Class Tech Tips, takes a look at some of the big shifts and movements in the EdTech space. She’ll cover:

  • How to use what you’ve learned from distance learning challenges
  • Why creating a plan for the future includes a look at the past
  • Strategies for focusing on what’s important
  • How AI (artificial intelligence) can be used to personalize learning, even when learning is taking place at home

Participants will leave this edWebinar with a top-level view of how EdTech can help you respond to the new realities of teaching and learning and plenty of “try tomorrow” strategies, too! This edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
