Join HASCD and nationally recognized educator Weston Kieschnick as we kick off the new school year spending a day focusing on the gateway to social emotional learning by being a bold school during these challenging times. Weston will dive into how “old school wisdom” + “new school technologies” = blended learning that works for students. Weston will also share how instructional strategies help students gain the skills they need to thrive now and in the future. Weston will also talk about continuing to build resilience for educators too.

This opportunity addresses HASCD’s commitment to provide professional development during the COVID-19 pandemic that focus on the needs of our students and educators that include:

  • Leading, learning and adjusting from a pandemic
  • Supporting social emotional learning needs
  • Innovation and technology in our classrooms
  • Supporting our students now and in the future
