This past year has challenged us as individuals, families, communities, countries and globally—and it has profoundly impacted educators, students, teaching and learning. But, on the positive side, we have learned to pivot in order to meet the evolving needs of the moment. At Girl Rising, where we use storytelling to focus on themes of social justice, gender equity, and global citizenship, we have developed new free resources that are flexible and can be easily used for distance, hybrid or in-person learning. Our new interactive online learning experience brings young people together at a time when they are feeling unconnected and inspires them to use their voices to create change at a time when change seems urgent.

Watch Girl Rising in a conversation that explores these strategies for helping students connect to the world, access their resilience and develop their personal agency during this age of COVID. In addition to discussing the online module, we discuss the other strategies we are using around the world to reach students during the pandemic.

This recorded edWebinar will benefit teachers across subject areas and grade levels, as well as school and district leaders.
