Giving students a Chromebook and playlist of online content isn’t the path to educational success. All students, regardless of background or learning needs, deserve engaging learning experiences and the opportunity to build personal agency as a learner. Educational equity and student ownership of learning are shaping the future of educational efficacy. In this edWebinar, we will share new research on the views of students and educators to help re-imagine classrooms and support student needs.
This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, school and district leaders, and curriculum leaders of the elementary through high school levels.
