The Anywhere School
August 11 -August 12, 2020
Starting at 11 am BST

We know this event falls during the summer holidays which isn’t the best timing for everyone.  You’ll be able to view the content afterwards. We’ve highlighted a few sessions from the program that we think you’ll find relevant:

Fireside chat with Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy

Sit down with Sal Khan as he shares his thoughts on online learning. Khan is the founder of Khan Academy, a nonprofit organisation that provides free, online-learning tools used by more than 30 million kids, educators, and parents. For over a decade, Khan Academy has been building a platform so that students everywhere, from pre-K through college, can learn all the subjects they need—on their own time, unrestricted by place—and ultimately use what they’ve learned in the real world.

How to approach hybrid learning

Join Google Certified Innovator Emma Pass as she shares insights and practical tips on synchronous and asynchronous learning. Emma has  taught in the UK and the US, and currently teaches at Colorado’s PSD Global Academy, a K-12 school that has been using hybrid learning for the past three years.

Wellbeing perspectives: What we've learned

Hear from policy makers, educators and mental health experts on how to strengthen student wellbeing and connection during uncertain times. Learn strategies for helping teachers address wellbeing and remain aware of their students' social and emotional learning needs when they’re apart.

Education in a post-COVID 19 world: Perspectives from Colombia, Mexico, and El Salvador

Educational leaders in Mexico, El Salvador and Chile discuss how the current reality has helped them accelerate the design of distance learning spaces, leverage the use of technology for education, and promote and expand connectivity and access to education in vulnerable areas. Learn about strategies for expanding education in Latin America, as well as plans for education in a post-COVID 19 world.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information on the event or if we can help support you in any way as you go back to school.
