Education Love (EdLove) in the Time of COVID:
Instruction, Assessment, and Digital Leadership
Teaching, learning and leading have required a different approach from the days once remembered. On February 25, 2021, Ed Kemnitzer led a CAS CTLE Workshop via Zoom for over 25 CAS members to review the impact the pandemic has had on education. School leaders explored tools that students and educators can “own” as they forward in their learning and leadership. Throughout this two-hour interactive workshop, attendees reflected on, thought about, and crafted a vision of what true 21st Century learning would encompass moving forward. Conversations focused on reevaluating the way students are assessed and “how we can change the platforms used to teach and lead.” Using project-based learning and sharing your story are ways to achieve that goal.
