As of early March, the COVID-19 coronavirus has put about 300 million students out of school around the world, as communities and whole countries try to contain its spread.
Join us for weekly 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 each week to discuss the latest developments in this rapidly evolving situation.
Some of the topics series panelists will discuss include:
On Wednesday, April 8 we’ll offer a bonus webinar sharing lessons from Chinese educators who have made the switch to online learning. Led by EdSurge cofounder Betsy Corcoran, our guests will share what they’ve learned by transitioning to remote education so quickly and the new options for learning they now have for their students. For this special edition, we’ll be using a Chinese webinar platform, ClassIn. Thank you to ClassIn for supporting our coronavirus coverage.
