LESSONS LEARNED: How this large Catholic high school used tech to teach during Covid-19
Jun 24, 2020 Season 1 Episode 14
Jessica Denson

On this episode of Connected Nation, we talk with Martha Tedesco and Mary Lang who are with Assumption High School located in Louisville, Kentucky. Assumption is the largest Sisters of Mercy-sponsored Catholic high school in the Americas and one of the largest all-girls Catholic schools in the country. 

The school approached COVID-19 closures in some unique ways. Lang and Tedesco share how they leveraged tech to better facilitate classroom instruction, create an online community for students and teachers, and produce a memorable graduation for the class of 2020—a group of seniors that we can all agree faced circumstances never before seen in our history.

How the lessons they've learned can help other schools, teachers, and students as school districts across the country consider how to handle classes this fall.
