 July 8th: Meeting the Needs of Our Youngest Learners 

Pre-K and Lower Schools have faced unique challenges during the recent transition to online learning in response to COVID-19. For this working “town hall” we will address what school can look like for our youngest learners when we return in the fall.

ATLIS is here for you! We will host virtual town hall meetings so the community can come together to share ideas and support one another. 

Free and open to all: registration required. If you have registered previously, you will automatically receive an invitation to future events.

That was then, this is now. The transition to online learning this past spring has opened the window for shifting schools towards new ways of engaging students in learning. 

We want to know how your PD is evolving.

  • How will you up your game with professional development to meet the needs of faculty and students where they are now?

  • How are you leveraging summer PD to sustain and support new hybrid learning environments?

Deadline for presenter submissions: July 15

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?
