We’re taking stock of the current state of education and what we’ve learned from opening schools remotely and in hybrid models. Where are leaders having success? How are they adapting to change and solving the challenge of bringing students back to school?
The opening session will set the stage for this exclusive week together of learning and harnessing the power of the design-thinking process. We come together in a spirit of co-designing, collaborating and working toward equity-driven technology solutions.
COVID-19 caused a nationwide disruption to schools as the pandemic forced a rapid transition to online and remote instruction. As schools conclude the first semester of the 2020-21 school year, we’ll examine the models that worked and those that fell short and hear from a panel of experts on what state leaders must prioritize when building the capacity of educators for digital learning to effectively and equitably help schools plan for the year ahead.
Identify your system’s most pressing needs around teaching and learning, equity and technology. Reflect how implicit bias affects perspectives on what schools should be and use this knowledge to define an aspiration that articulates your vision for meaningful learning. This aspiration will be your North Star throughout your design journey.
Learn from Miami-Dade County Public Schools District and how they have returned to school with virtual and hybrid models and how they’re supporting their education community during remote learning. Hear about unexpected highlights and successes, solving for challenges, and how a pandemic can push a district to remagine what learning can look like for students.
Join the mainstage session to kick off the week at ISTE20 Live!
The pandemic has forced districts to innovate in ways they’ve never imagined, some change has come by design and some organically. Districts are also using innovative practices to support their students’ and staff’s social-emotional needs. Learn from two district leaders about how they are currently thinking about innovation and consider what changes will "stick."
