Waves hello to Ruth Okoye!

Agree.. SEL for students and staff is so critical
Valerie Truesdale AASA

Isolationism is huge impact on kids. Anything we can do to help educators relate virtually, we should do. Relationships-first teaching is emerging.

Sean McDonough

Just a comment... Since COVID has forced us all to adopt uses of technology to enhance teaching and learning, we should now go forward and focus our work on "teaching and learning WITH technology (digital, onsite, remote, etc.) and not reference "digital learning" or "hybrid learning" or "eLearning". We are always focused on teaching and learning and will better serve our communities by referencing this as such and not put any modifiers BEFORE learning. This will help combat those that don't feel "digital learning" is working. Thus ends my sermon. thx ;)
Ji Soo Song
35:39
Good point Sean. We should be thinking about these rich learning experiences as the norm.
Ji Soo Song
36:05
And how we can ensure that all communities have access to equitable resources that help reach that end.
Sean McDonough
36:06
@Ji Soo Exactly!

Parent Teacher Conferences are happening virtually -- it's working. We are advocating to school system leaders to continue the enhanced parent engagement post-pandemic. We also are live streaming meetings and that is resulting in more attendance, as per Carol's point.
Richard Culatta
49:34
It’s been amazing to see the increased participation in parent teacher conferences when they are more accessible.
Valerie Truesdale AASA
50:52
Continue.Stop.Start is always a great strategy for feedback. I think the continue will be a surprisingly long list.

To Brian and Ji Soo’s earlier point - hearing great stories of teachers teaching and supporting each other. Opportunity to advocate for and support teacher leaders will continue. Great opportunity to leverage ISTE Cert thoughtfully to support your whole school, district, state
