Two years ago, educators responding to the pandemic were “building the plane in the air,” but now, some of the tools and strategies honed during the crisis have the potential to go the distance to boost student learning. We’ll look at key teaching strategies that educators think have staying power, including instructional acceleration; flexible learning time; and technology use.

Industry Perspective: Improve Information Retention With Sketchnoting
“Sketchnoting,” or “visual notetaking,” is increasingly being recognized as a legitimate form of notetaking that is surprisingly effective at improving retention of information.
In this session, we will:
- Explore the brain science behind sketchnoting’s effectiveness
- Discuss how to get started even if you think you cannot draw
- Share resources for further exploration
Panel Discussion: Here's How Learning 'Acceleration' Really Works
Industry Perspective: Using Personalized Mastery for Teaching and Learning
Age of Learning believes that all children can excel in math and reading.
Personalized mastery learning meets each child with their own learning path and empowers them to succeed at their own rate. This is an instructional shift for educators. We no longer teach to grade level. Rather, we meet each child where they are.
You will learn about our Architecture of Understanding, and how these instructional shifts for educators can be smooth and equitable for children. Educators will learn how data moves the dial for success and how mastery learning gets to the heart of each child’s knowledge base.
