EdTech in the Era of Distance Learning Webinar

What does it look like to make the most of education technology through distance learning? The past few months have been a whirlwind. With a public health crisis and school closures across the country — and in different parts of the world — the term distance learning has taken center stage.

The folks at Illustrative Mathematics reached out to me earlier this year to share their special resources for sixth, seventh, and eighth-graders. The have a middle school math curriculum and support materials for teachers.

If you follow along with me on social media, or if you’ve listened to a recent episode of my Easy EdTech Podcast, you know that this is an issue I’ve been talking about for some time. With so many schools exploring the concept of distance learning for the first time, it has sparked a lot of meaningful conversations.

The folks at NetRef reached out to me about an opportunity to host a webinar on this topic. In just a few weeks, I’ll talk about this topic of “EdTech in the Era of Distance Learning” during a free webinar. It takes place on Wednesday, April 15th, 2020, at 4 PM ET, and you can even earn a CE Certificate for attending.

Distance Learning Webinar

Here is the official webinar description:

Now, more than ever, the world of EdTech is evolving quickly. It can be hard to keep track of it all. As many schools shift to distance learning, it’s essential to take time to reflect on your school’s use of EdTech so far this school year, and what new EdTech you want to implement in the coming year, as well as what you need to do in order to maximize your current EdTech investments to respond to students’ and teachers’ needs.

Join this edWebinar as Dr. Monica Burns, author of Tasks Before Apps and founder of Class Tech Tips, takes a look at some of the big shifts and movements in the EdTech space. She’ll cover:

  • How to use what you’ve learned from distance learning challenges
  • Why creating a plan for the future includes a look at the past
  • Strategies for focusing on what’s important
  • How AI (artificial intelligence) can be used to personalize learning, even when learning is taking place at home

Participants will leave this edWebinar with a top-level view of how EdTech can help you respond to the new realities of teaching and learning and plenty of “try tomorrow” strategies, too! This edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
