Tuesday: Pioneers of Remote Education

THE BRICKS AND MORTAR OF REMOTE EDUCATION

A conversation with those directly engaged in what education post-COVID looks like

TUESDAY, MAY 12TH, 11 AM (EDT)

School buildings may have closed, but the conversation about what education will look like post-COVID has only just opened. Remote education, done well, is more than a zoom meeting with the same content as a brick-and-mortar classroom. Products designed to be utilized at home continue to make the American dream attainable. When the economy opens, school will have to open - and the pioneers of education during COVID are here to help. What does real estate have to do with virtual and blended learning, anyway? 

In a short 90 minute Zoom webinar, you can hear the next of CER’s ACTION Series, where guests provide firsthand information to impact how the nation transforms education in light of the pandemic. Strong Mindoffers software, curricular, and organizational solutions that enable excellent learning at hybrid and virtual schools serving over 225,000 students. Independence Mission Schools is a non-profit network of 15 independent Catholic schools providing a transformative education to children of all faiths in low-income neighborhoods across the city of Philadelphia, where teachers and families have come together in recent weeks for remote learning with incredible engagement and results.
