While virtual learning has become a reality for many school districts across the US, the perception remains mixed. There are benefits and challenges to consider, and ultimately, virtual learning is still in its infancy as we continue to explore the best use cases.

Despite the mixed perception, many leaders are innovating virtual learning and discovering thoughtful ways to use it to better serve educators and prepare students for the future.

Join this webinar to hear from educators who have developed distinct and intentional approaches to online educational programs. We will discuss how they have expanded student accessibility, infused real-world learning, and offered specialty courses that meet student needs.

You will hear:

  • The challenges and opportunities of virtual learning
  • How leaders are innovating virtual learning
  • Use cases for virtual learning
