In a world awash with technology, what edtech skills should educators focus on to ensure they’re making the most of digital learning? What strategies can today’s teachers lean on to help students learn to navigate online spaces with ease?

Join Dr. Burns to explore a transformative set of competencies that students can use to develop transferable skills, share their learning, and connect their work to relevant audiences. Along the way, educators will also dive deep into resource curation best practices, as well as thoughtfully engage with the importance of developing collaboration structures and assessing students with intention.
