Equity. Growth mindset. Instructional planning. Remote learning during a pandemic.
These are some of the topics on district leaders' minds across the U.S. today—and some of the themes covered at HMH's Think Connected Virtual Summit. The invitation-only event in October was an opportunity for K–12 district leaders to engage and interact with recognized authors and other educators nationwide to discuss solutions to their most pressing challenges.
In addition to connecting with their peers in sessions led by researchers and other educators, district leaders watched keynote sessions from four renowned leaders:
- Dr. Jo Boaler, Professor at Stanford Graduate School of Education and expert on growth mindset and mathematics education
- Dr. Tyrone Howard and Jaleel Howard, Associate Dean for Equity & Inclusion at the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies and his son, a doctoral student and former educator, who discussed equity, access, and intervention
- Dr. Thomasenia Adams, Professor and Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Development at the University of Florida College of Education
- Dr. Adam Drummond, ICLE Director of Professional Learning, who spoke on remote teaching and learning
The speakers covered four principal themes in the keynote sessions. Take a look at what the experts had to say about each of them.
