Next Webinar: Fall 2020
*We're on break for the summer, but register to receive updates on future webinars in this series.
The COVID-19 coronavirus has put roughly nine out of ten students out of school around the world, as communities and whole countries try to contain its spread.
Join us for a series of live webinars on how K-12 schools are coping, the move to remote learning and how students and educators are being impacted by the virus. EdSurge K-12 Editor Stephen Noonoo and other editors and reporters will host different panelists to discuss the latest developments in this rapidly evolving situation.
Some of the topics series panelists will discuss include:
