COVID-19 created one of the biggest disruptions for learning in history. Students’ connectedness to schools, educators, and peers; physical and emotional well-being; and academic engagement have all been diminished by a breakdown in learning environments across the country. This fall it will be more critical than ever that students feel safe, connected, and engaged, presenting an opportunity for educators to try new approaches to optimizing the conditions for learning. Watch Angela Duckworth and Todd Rogers for a candid discussion on recreating learning this fall.

This recorded edLeader Panel will be of interest to preK-12 district leaders.
