There is no magic bullet for schools to successfully navigate the aftermath of COVID-19. Even our nation’s best education minds are feeling their way through, combining technology with a generous dose of caution as they plan their Autumn returns.

The new school year is almost upon us, and many questions remain. Planning for the 2020/2021 school year is a guessing game at best, with one-part art, one-part science, and a generous helping of soothsaying thrown in for good measure.

As a concept, artificial intelligence is all the rage, but in actual utilization, most districts are still in the gee-wiz phase. In fact, it’s still hard to agree on the definition of AI. So whether we’re talking about machine learning, algorithmic decision tree logic or real conversational AI, student-led personalized learning is within reach and a must-have for the COVID/post-COVID era of learning

This issue is paramount to the overall game plan for schools and districts as they transform their delivery model from one of a place-based system to that of a virtual, distance-based delivery system
