Some of the best educational content is developed with creative thinking and a willingness to try new things – and if teachers and students have the right tools, they are on the right track.
Think about how students communicate outside of school today – much of it is video-based, and if educators can meet students in this space, they will be able to create more engaging and impressive lessons. In the era of TikTok, Instagram Video and Snapchat video also provided the perfect medium to encourage and enhance intuitive content creation in a classroom environment.
Learn more during this eSchool News webinar with educators and edtech experts who can talk about how video allows teachers to measure students’ understanding, allows students to access content at their own pace, and more.

Who would have thought that we would still learn in the middle of a pandemic? At the beginning of this school year, public school districts had to make important decisions about how to approach this school year. How would they ensure the safety of students? How would they further involve students in learning? And how would they support teachers in this process?
COVID-19 probably caused the biggest shift in education since the invention of the printer. Almost overnight, teaching and learning moved from classrooms to the online environment. School systems have invested thousands of dollars in Chromebooks, Wi-Fi hotspots and other technologies.
It’s one thing to attend a professional development (PD) meeting or instructional coaching – but taking what you’ve learned and putting it into practice is another. Most often, these are the biggest differences of experience based on cooperation, reflection and active change.
Having used the 7 Mindsets SEL curriculum for about six years at my previous school, I knew right away that I could help my new school optimize the SEL curriculum, which had been in place for about a year.
Over the last year and a half, “hybrid learning” has become quite a buzzword when it comes to education. With the COVID-19 pandemic, which is affecting students around the world, we have witnessed a growing need for hybrid learning, an educational opportunity that combines the benefits of a traditional personal classroom and online teaching.
When we closed 2020, we certainly thought that 2021 could bring us relief from pandemic learning. Well, it happened, and it didn’t happen – virtual and hybrid learning continued until spring, but then the classes welcomed students back to full-time full-time teaching in the fall.
Before the pandemic, many schools, colleges and universities had problems with indoor air quality, but the last 18 months have brought increased awareness of the growing problem. According to a 2020 Government Accountability Office study, 40 percent of national school systems must replace at least half of their HVAC systems.
As schools across the country open their classrooms to return to full personal learning, educators, parents and stakeholders are asking what the fall will bring. Concerns about the rise of COVID and the return to distance or hybrid learning are not far from the minds of educators.
Technology plays a key role in the classroom, and as it becomes more sophisticated, educators recognize that creating an active learning environment can help them use technology efficiently and effectively and engage students in learning.
When we published our forecasts for 2020 on January 1 last year, together with most of the world, we certainly did not anticipate the curve that was (and continues to be) the global COVID-19 pandemic.
