There’s no doubt that virtual learning is here to stay, and that teachers need more support to deliver better online and blended learning experiences.
That’s why Arizona State University is hosting a FREE VIRTUAL EVENT for K-12 teachers around the world this Saturday, Jan. 9, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. PST.
Hosted by Arizona State University, “REMOTE K12: The Connected Teacher Summit” is a free virtual event that takes place this Saturday, Jan. 9, to help K-12 teachers across the country (and around the world) deliver better online and blended learning experiences.
Teachers can learn and network with educators; they will share effective and efficient virtual learning techniques and offer insights on pedagogy, course design, equity, wellness, accessibility, assessment, collaboration, engagement and more.
The summit will feature:
- 130+ sessions during six hours of programming that is spread over 15 content tracks. (The presentations will be available after the event through June 2021.)
- Live Q&As that will allow participants to ask direct questions of speakers and receive answers in real-time.
- More than 30 moderated chat rooms with a mix of environments, inviting structured discussions around disciplines and topics and grade bands.
This free virtual event is for K-12 teachers in district public, charter and private schools nationally and internationally, along with everyone who supports and enables teachers, including: principals, academic and administrative staff, superintendents, CIOs, directors of education technology, and decision makers around distance learning and policy. (So far, more than 10,000 teachers have enrolled from around the country, and the world.)
ASU Learning Enterprise, the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, and ASU Prep Digital will apply credits toward an ASU K-12 Digital Teaching PD Certificate for attendees at REMOTE K12: The Connected Teacher Summit. (Sessions are free of charge and enrollment certificates are based on completion of at least 5 sessions.)
This virtual event will help teachers discover the most effective online and blended learning techniques for Kindergarten through Grade 12 education. Teachers can gain an ASU-certified Professional Development Credential for attending sessions and filling out a post-event survey.
