The Emergency Home Learning Summit - Free

Nov 17, 2020 jjamison

The how-to summit for making the most of home-based and home-centered learning.

Whether by circumstance or choice, learning at home is now the reality for more students than ever.

We asked our speakers this question: "What do you know about learning that could dramatically help or change the lives of students (as well as parents, teachers, librarians, and others) at this moment?"

This two-month event is for everyone interested in helping students to learn, because we're having what may be one of the most important conversations about learning in the history of the world.

Understanding when, where, and how learning takes place has never been more important.

SOME OF THE TOPICS COVER IN THE SUMMIT TALKS & INTERVIEWS:

ADHD and Learning ∙ Alternative Education ∙ Balancing Home and School ∙ Blended Learning ∙ Brain-based Learning ∙ Classroom 2.0 ∙ College Admissions ∙ Connections ∙ Creativity ∙ Defining Success ∙ Digital Citizenship ∙ Educational Technology ∙ Elementary Years ∙ Engagement ∙ ESL ∙ Family & Parenting ∙ Future of Eduction ∙ Games ∙ Gap Years & Family Sabbaticals ∙ Global Collaborations ∙ Grades and the Game of School ∙ Hacking Your Education ∙ High School ∙ Higher Education ∙ Homeschooling ∙ Homework ∙ Hope and Healing ∙ Innovation ∙ Learning ∙ Learning Coaching and Mentoring ∙ Learning Cultures ∙ Libraries and Librarians ∙ Managing Stress ∙ Math Education ∙ Microschools ∙ Mindful Teaching and Learning ∙ Lifelong Learning ∙ Music Education ∙ Online Learning ∙ Open Source and OER ∙ Pandemic Pods ∙ Play ∙ Positive Education ∙ Practical Student Tools (Email / Calendars / Organizers) ∙ Reading ∙ Reinventing School ∙ Remote Teaching and Learning ∙ Self-Directed Learning ∙ Sleep and Rest ∙ Social and Emotional Learning ∙ Special Needs ∙ Strengths-based Education ∙ Stress ∙ Student 2.0 ∙ Student Entrepreneurship ∙ Teacher 2.0 ∙ Teaching ∙ Teaching Online ∙ Temperament and Learning Styles ∙ Testing and Assessment ∙ Unschooling ∙ Virtual Schooling ∙ Work ∙ World Schooling

DROP-IN CONVERSATIONS:

During the Summit there will be a series of live, open, hosted chat/help sessions on specific topics.

CURATED SERIES:

In addition to original presentations, interviews, and content, the Summit also hosts curated videos each day that might be helpful to those navigating the new realities of learning, education, and school. 

We're scheduling more speakers and sessions every day. Talk days and times (except for indicated "live" events) are when we are releasing the sessions for free viewing.
