How can education leaders and researchers partner to address the biggest challenges facing schools today?

We know that school districts across the country are tackling the toughest challenges in education, including kindergarten readiness, family engagement, and school redesign. To address these challenges, we need to understand how they are experienced in different settings—from small, rural districts to large, urban districts—and we need to learn from educators and researchers who are working to solve these issues.

In this edWebinar, learn how the Digital Promise Research team collaborated with school districts in the League of Innovative Schools to discover precisely which shared challenges these forward-thinking districts are prioritizing in order to surface promising approaches and bring educators and researchers together around pressing problems of practice. We’ll talk about how school leaders and educators can shape this process, and share how you can apply these ideas at your own school to think through research priorities. Learn how to utilize the Challenge Map, an interactive tool featuring information and resources on 36 specific education challenges.

This recorded session will be of particular benefit to K-12 teachers, librarians, school leaders, and district leaders, as well as researchers.
