Teach Boldly

Preview ATLIS Reads 2021 with Special Guest

Dr. Jennifer Williams, author of Teach Boldly: Using Edtech for Social Good
August 5, 1 pm Eastern

Schools are now facing the huge challenge of reinventing themselves in the wake of COVID-19. Will they reopen in a new socially-distanced configuration in the Fall with a plan to nimbly transition to online learning once again if needed? Or will they adapt to some new hybrid model to serve their mission to educate students? 

This summit follows up discussions of the ATLIS Technology Considerations for Campus Reopening at our recent Virtual Town Hall. We are crowdsourcing the best ideas from our community for how to access the information needed to make informed decisions about planning ahead.

Presenters will be chosen from crowdsourced submissions addressing the questions: 

  • What information (stories/data) are you collecting and how? 

  • How are you using this information to learn from your experiences and plan ahead?
