This online summit will examine the ways in which technology has reshaped K-12 education during COVID-19 and what that means for teaching and learning now, next school year, and beyond. The pandemic has forced teachers across the country to learn all kinds of new tech skills and integrate them into their instruction, the country has seen an expansion of 1-to-1 computing programs for K-12 students like never before, and valuable lessons were learned about virtual learning and what works and what doesn’t work.
At the same time, the push to put more technology in the hands of students has exposed huge equity gaps between the tech haves and have nots, regarding access to digital devices and reliable WiFi. Schools and states have tried to bridge those gaps, but the inequities will persist even once most students and teachers are back in school buildings. What does that mean for how technology is used in education?
Education Week has been covering all these developments closely, supplementing our reporting with monthly surveys of educators during the pandemic. This summit will bring that reporting and survey work together with our featured guests and audience members to tackle issues surrounding this important question: When it comes to the use of technology, what’s next for schools?
