When schools shifted virtual overnight, teachers and administrators used technology in new and creative ways. Devices and hotspots were deployed in an effort to accommodate all learners and teachers rapidly scaled up for virtual instruction. Much changed in the course of weeks and months but what impacts will be long lasting? In this session you will hear perspectives from educators and education technology leaders on what changes from the COVID-pandemic will remain and how EdTech must consider them in new product innovation for education. The discussion will focus on key takeaways from teachers and district leaders, changes in stakeholder needs, device availability and future plans for virtual and in-person learning.

Who should attend? The session is designed for education technology enthusiasts; EdTech business leaders, product managers, developers, marketers and strategists, from startup to large global companies.
