EdTech Center Distance Education Strategy webinar Friday March 27th

Hello Colleagues,

The EdTech Center @ World Education will host the second of its Distance Education Strategy Sessions this Friday at 10:00 Pacific/12:00 Central/ and 1:00 Eastern. The webinar will feature two lightning talks - brief presentations on key topics. Attendees will then choose to attend a breakout discussion on either of the topics. This week features ESOL teacher Nan Frydland talking about her use of What's App as a key instructional resource and Ginnette Chandler and Tiffany Brand sharing how New Hampshire makes use of the Teacher Verification Model for capturing proxy contact hours for distance learning.  Click here to register for the webinar.

Questions and comments may be posted before or after the webinar in this LINCS discussion thread:

We continue to persevere during these challenging times!

As we scramble to serve our students, I wanted to make you aware of a few resources that have appeared around our community in case you missed them:

Hi David and Steve,

Thanks very much for these resources- so helpful! I'll share with staff I work with.

Is there a web page where recordings of all four strategy sessions will live? That would be great for practitioners (and me) to refer to.

Thank you.

Hi Diana!

Yes! There is a page where people can sign up for the strategy sessions and where they can view past recordings. Here is a link to that page.
