Trying times mean leadership is challenged to proactively create positivity. Just showing up is sometimes fraught with difficulty for both teachers and students. Staff could end up in quarantine at any time. With every day bringing more uncertainty, embodying resiliency helps staff, educators, students and their parents keep pushing for achievement. What sort of education plans are helping with this? What sort of talking points are leaders using to drive these plans forward daily?
The future of education is an ever-changing landscape as it evolves to meet the demands of administrators, educators, students and families. Whether in response to a global crisis or off-site support for hands-on learning opportunities, schools must deliver the learning experience regardless of locale.
With constant changes to learning schedules and the risk of staff needing to quarantine, administrators have constantly changing priorities. Setting up the core priorities for digital learning may need to involve district-wide operations so that remote teachers and learners have better navigation. How systems and learning networks are getting reconstructed as the primary delivery mechanism so that the human interface is elevated and tech issues minimized is a concern for education leaders. During this upcoming webinar, we will delve into the priorities districts now have with regard to virtual and hybrid learning support.
In these uncertain times, one thing is certain: learning for K-12 students must continue. The question on everyone’s mind though, is how? Join us for a panel-style webinar where we will hear from district leaders as they discuss how their districts have maintained learning continuity, accounted for access issues, enabled district staff, and supported equity in learning for all students.

Attendees at the Learning Counsel’s National Gathering and Awards 2020 were treated to an e-sports presentation by Dr. Katrina Adkins, Senior Program Director- K12/Higher Ed Solutions at SHI.
“What's interesting about e-sports is that it has been around since the 1970s,” said Dr. Adkins. “The concept of gaming in schools is not something new. We're figuring out in the education space how to make it happen safely, how to give students a new opportunity not only to gain valuable job and life skills, but for entry into colleges."
