Reimagining Possibilities for Blended Hybrids and Distance Learning Models
A Panel Discussion Moderated by Cathy Fosnot, CEO of New Perspectives on Learning
What will learning opportunities for our children look like in the fall? If distance learning is the choice, how do we partner with communities to ensure there is internet access for all and that the opportunities provided involve children in inquiry and active learning to support the mathematical practices? If blended learning onsite is the option, how do we move beyond the constraints of social distancing with children 6 feet apart in rows, to reimagine classroom structures and learning formats without walls, but with open access and equity? The panelists have all been thinking hard about these questions and in contrast to delivering planned addresses, they have all agreed to share their current ideas and to discuss new possibilities together. Join us for a spirited conversation as we creatively brainstorm new structures and formats that may break barriers and undo old belief systems that may be currently hindering the radical transformations we need to make.
