    Digital Transformation
    in a New Age:

    Making hybrid learning inclusive

    April 14, 2021 at 2 PM ET

    45 minutes

  • What to expect.

  • Effective learning is about more than just education; it's about successfully addressing the needs of the whole student. That means including mental health support and more. The key is to understand those needs so that no student gets left behind. 

    In this webinar, host Albert Shen of Verizon and speakers Dr. Lisa Aasheim of Portland Community College, Dr. Carissa Moffat Miller of the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and Mark Mitsui of Portland Community College will discuss how to adjust hybrid learning models to support digital inclusion for all students. 

    The speakers will explore the impact that changing learning models have made across K-12 and higher education, for both students and teachers. They'll also talk about diversity and inclusion, and how to provide connectivity to those who need it most.
