K-12 educational institutions have experienced a major shift in the way we teach and learn with hybrid learning – a mix of remote and in-person instruction – now being the new normal. As administrators plan for 2021 and beyond, it is critical to build a long-term technology solution that balances the needs of instruction and student engagement through high-performance devices and digital tools.
In early 2020, District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) announced the Empowered Learners Initiative (ELi) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to close the digital divide. With a swift deployment of devices and curriculum support for teachers, DCPS is ensuring equitable access to technology and preparing students to be informed and engaged digital citizens.
Join our discussion of Microsoft industry experts and representatives from DCPS as they discuss:
- The latest Microsoft Surface for Education devices and how they transform your learning and teaching environments.
- Simplifying instruction in the remote and hybrid classroom and improving learning outcomes with Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365.
- Engaging all students regardless of ability level with accessibility features built into educational tools like Microsoft Whiteboard, OneNote, and Microsoft Teams.
- How you can leverage current stimulus funding opportunities on future device purchases to reach your long-term technology goals.
We look forward to seeing you in this informative discussion.
