Student-Centered Summit: For Teachers & Tech Coaches
A panel discussion with leading K-12 educators about the importance of student-centered instruction as we use the Summer months to prepare to go back to in-person learning.
Thursday, June 17, 2021 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm EST
A FREE day of digital learning for K-12 Teachers and Tech Coaches!
At a Glance
K-12 educators are heading into one of the most needed Summer breaks after nearly a year of remote learning challenged them to implement more technology, conduct instruction in new ways, and strengthen relationships with students from a distance. As we think about going back to the classroom following Summer ’21, it has become clear that teachers and faculty will need to prioritize student-centered instruction to make sure students are receiving the differentiation, instruction, and leadership that will be required to transition back to in-person learning.
That’s why we’re hosting the Student-Centered Summit: For Teachers & Tech Coaches!
This hour-long event will be a discussion with leading K-12 Teachers and Tech Coaches to discuss the changes that have taken place since remote learning was initiated and the transition that will be required to make in-person learning successful come Fall ’21. We will be talking about concerns to take into account when welcoming students back, student-centered instructional tactics, ideas for effective relationship building, and why this topic is so important to focus on during the Summer months.
What to Expect:
- Discussion between a panel of leading K-12 educators
- Questions submitted by you (the attendees) to drive discussion
- Innovative tactics for student-centered design
- Live Q&A between attendees and the panelists
Access to the live event will only be made available to those who register. But, if you can’t attend the live event, we’ll send you the recording afterward.
