What are the new schooling models?

Are there new responsibilities for the whole shift in digital learning? What about better understanding the developing ed-tech software scene?

  • Measuring student engagement with those resources
  • Rostering student data quickly and a safely  

Many districts are turning to single sign-on solutions that include analytics and automated rostering to solve these issues. This session will illustrate how districts can use these platforms to provide consistent access to digital learning and drive student engagement at home and in the classroom.

Virtual learning provides an opportunity to engage, inform and prepare students for success by providing equitable and accessible educational experiences to diverse students and families. Building awareness about accessibility of digital content and providing e-learning tools is an effective way to remove the barriers to fully engage all in the learning process. Creating an inclusive culture with digital accessibility in mind is an important step to support all learners and helps assure that you are reaching increased levels of accessibility standards in your district. In this session, Blackboard will explore these concepts, share research, best practices, and tools to support your digital accessibility efforts.
