Education meets the universe: The promise and the worry (Free Member Webinar)
Formerly titled: Metaverse
Everyone is talking about the metaverse. Its diverse applications include gaming, real estate and entertainment among others. Few are addressing how this relatively new technology might impact education for good or for bad. The metaverse can bring us to new worlds that would rarely or never be personally explored – from ancient Greece, to underwater adventures, to outer space. But crafting these experiences in ways that are educationally sound requires intentionality and inclusion of the latest science on how and what children need to learn. This talk brings the science together with the technology to offer a framework for educational sound development of the metaverse.

Leveraging Technology Tools to Provide Equitable Learning Opportunities for ALL Students

Technology plays a critical role when it comes to school districts assuring that equitable learning opportunities are accessible for ALL students, especially those with disabilities, learning differences, and English language learners, as well as students from lower socio-economic communities. In addition to making certain that all students have access to their needed course content and tools, school leaders need to ensure that the information they provide to the public, parents, guardians, and staff is readily accessible on any technology device. The needs inherent in guaranteeing accessibility for all go beyond meeting the legal requirements defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The accessibility policies and practices school leaders implement must be consistently vocal and visible to all within the communities they serve.

Planning and Sustaining Technology Innovations: Aligning Priorities, Costs, and Outcomes Webinar

When technology initiatives are viewed as investments rather than simply costs, school leaders have the opportunity to apply decision-making strategies that are meaningful and relevant to an education environment. Planning for and implementing district technology investments in any school system is a complex process involving multiple stakeholders, each with their own valid concerns and requests.
