How to Move from Crisis Management to Sustained Change
SPONSORED BY D2L
How do we propel education systems toward a future of learning that enables all students to grow as lifelong, empowered learners?
Join a panel of state and district leaders, edtech pioneers and policy experts aiming to answer that question. Learn how leaders at all levels can ensure that the technology innovations many schools and districts implemented at rapid speed in response to COVID-19 endure. Panelists will also reflect on how schools can continue to learn from and build on the resiliency shown by educators during this unprecedented moment of disruption, fostering growth and transformation into the future.
Referencing ISTE and D2L's recent report on states leading the future of learning with ISTE standards, the panel will discuss how to:
- Set a shared vision for the future of learning enabled by technology
- Build the capacity of educators to lead and implement effective learning strategies enabled by technology
- Develop policies and structures to guide schools and districts equitably and sustainably toward the future of learning enabled through technology
