COVID Keepsakes
COVID Keepsakes

With the Delta variant throwing a monkey wrench into school planning, this week’s  #NYCSchoolsTech Virtual Summit was a good opportunity to reflect on the many lessons we’ve learned in education since COVID first hit the scene in March 2020 -- and how these lessons can prepare for another uncertain year ahead. 


This one-day virtual conference, hosted in partnership with Tech & Learning, covered a variety of topics. The day kicked off with a keynote from Genevieve Bell from the Australian National University, who discussed how cybernetics can be integrated into school planning to support creativity and higher-order thinking. This was followed by dozens of professional development sessions, including “Reimaging Education: What to Keep and What to Ditch,” “How Leaders Update Their Practices in a Post-Pandemic World,” using tech to promote equity in classrooms, and much more. Dozens of vendors also presented helpful workshops on how to use their tools to improve teaching and learning.
