As you begin planning for FY22, how are you making data-driven decisions to inform your programming and re-opening strategies? Has your program team begun to ask how to "build back better"?
These questions form the basis of a common theme being discussed in many adult education programs. This free EdTech Strategy Session, from the EdTech Center at World Education, will focus on shifts programs have made in the last year, and in particular those that are sticking as programs develop reopening strategies.
Important Note: Rather than register with SABES, register here with the EdTech Center.
Two EdTech Center partner programs will share how their experiences of the past year are informing their planning for future services:
- Karen Rivas and colleagues from the Carlos Rosario Adult Public Charter School will share resources and experiences with a human-centered approach that will be key to reopening for the 2021-22 school year. Focusing on meeting the needs of the moment and blending adult education student needs, Carlos Rosario is exploring offering flexible learning spaces based on what they learned during the pandemic, while adjusting to changing local health guidelines and DC School parameters.
- Next we’ll hear how the Ronald M Hubbs Center for Lifelong Learning/St. Paul Adult Basic Education (MN) embraced a new approach to make technology-rich instruction more equitable. In the fall of 2020, they started implementing "push-in" digital literacy instruction. Adam Kieffer describes his visits to remote ELL class sessions, where he offers highly relevant, digital skills instruction.
