edFocus Summit: The Impact of COVID-19 on K-12 Education
Mar 11, 2021

This edWeb podcast is sponsored by ClassLink.

Our opening session features a panel of leading educators discussing the impact of COVID-19 on K-12 Education. The panel is moderated by Julie Evans, the CEO of Project Tomorrow, and informed by the research that has been done on the impact of this crisis on educators, student learning, and the education ecosystem. The panel shares their insights on how COVID-19 is influencing a new education transformation in our country. 


In spring 2020, the landscape of K-12 education was forever shifted by a seismic event that no one could have predicted; a global pandemic that resulted in the closure of school buildings and widespread implementation of remote, at-home learning for over 55 million students in the United States.  For most of those students, school learning took place through a tablet, laptop or Chromebook screen and a virtual connection to classmates and teachers.  Like an earthquake, this unforeseen jolt to the education enterprise resulted in a dramatic and immediate change to the everyday teaching and learning process for students and teachers, for families and schools. While this sudden shift to digital learning created many new challenges for K-12 schools, it also has resulted in a new awakening regarding the future of education.
