Concept BOLD Summit: Blended and Online Learning for All
If the past year has taught us anything, we’ve learned how amazing educators can truly be. From classroom teacher to counselors and from administrators to specialists, we’ve seen educators take innovative approaches to teaching and learning time and time again.
During the pandemic, schools have made significant investments in technology and developing teachers’ capacity to provide high-quality online and hybrid instruction that both challenges and supports our students. Through EdWisely, Concept Schools will help educators further develop and leverage these tools as schools return to in-person instruction at the Concept BOLD Summit: Blended & Online Learning for All.
The Concept BOLD Summit: Blended & Online Learning Design for All focuses on the following themes:
Lessons from the Pandemic
Diversity & Equity
Student & Adult SEL
Sustainable Blended Learning
