Why Attend the Florida Student Engagement Summit?
There is growing uncertainty that devices and technology are being used effectively during remote and hybrid learning in the state of Florida. We have heard from educators across the country that they are seeking an opportunity to explore the topic of student engagement. That is why we are hosting an event centered around student engagement for Florida educators and featuring a panel of leading EdTech innovators from the state of Florida.
The best part? The discussion will be driven by questions submitted by YOU.
The Florida Student Engagement Summit gives you the opportunity to submit questions about student engagement directly to our panel before the event. These questions will drive the discussion in order to get you actionable tips and strategies that you can use to overcome student engagement challenges in your school.
