The coronavirus pandemic and the resulting shift to distance learning are prompting many districts to reassess which technology tools and resources will be needed to support students and staff in the 2020-21 school year. Education Week has designed the K-12 Solutions Summit to help district leaders and educators prepare for the coming school year so you can discover best practices and innovative solutions directly from K-12 education product and service providers as well as other district leaders.

During this two-part summit*, you will gain actionable intel to inform decision-making for your students, schools, and district.

* Content will be the same at the July 15 and July 29 events. You can register for one or both events.


How the Coronavirus Is Shaping School Tech Use and Equity

Watch an exclusive, pre-recorded interview with Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho on how the district’s “digital convergence” initiative, put in motion before COVID-19, prepared it for the technology and equity challenges of full-time remote learning and how the lessons it has learned can be applied to the reopening of schools nationwide.

In this interview, we cover:

  • Why district leaders should use this challenging period of time to re-imagine a better K-12 school system for all children
  • The importance of focusing more on effective professional development and quality online resources over digital device purchases
  • Steps educators can take to better understand the needs of students and parents and their communities
  • How schools should take the lessons learned this spring and use them to build better blended learning initiatives for the fall
  • Why this is the most challenging time ever for K-12 public schools


Peer-to-Peer Discussions

The summit will also include chat rooms where district leaders, school leaders, and educators of all stripes can share best practices and seek answers to pressing questions with their peers.

Join your fellow education leaders and K-12 service providers at this summit and gain insights that will help you provide the best outcomes for your students this school year.




Private Chats With K-12 Companies

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage in private, one-on-one chats with K-12 vendors to:

  • Discover new resources for students that could improve teaching and instruction
  • Learn how to better integrate products that districts have already purchased
  • Find new strategies to prepare for the upcoming school year
  • Gather information about new tools and technologies that can be shared with district and school leaders to inform buying decisions
