When Covid-19 forced schools to close in March 2020, the world of education changed in an instant. Remote learning became a staple of Long Island’s youngest to oldest students, and teachers needed to adapt quickly.

Luckily, the technology to teach and learn from home has existed for many years now. But there were — and still are — many challenges to overcome and questions to be answered. 

On Jan. 12, Schneps Media hosts a panel of professionals for a webinar called “Pandemic Teaching: How to Make the Best Out of a Bad Situation.” Speakers will include Tom Franson, Vice President of Support Services at Custom Computer Specialists; Dr. Joan Neehall, a clinical psychologist; David Zimbler, principal of Westbury High School; and Eudes Budhai, superintendent of Westbury Schools.

With this paradigm shift in education comes technical challenges, issues, and questions from parents, students, and educators.

How do all students get access to technology? How do they learn physical education? Who supervises them? What expectations do teachers have for grading? How do students maintain social interactions?

The questions differ in every grade level and school, including at the preschool level and all the way up through college.

Get answers to your questions about effective teaching during the pandemic, tips on maintaining positive social and mental health, and how innovation in technology can help students and educators succeed. 

Register here for the “Pandemic Teaching” webinar.
