  • 2:00 PM - Exceptional Circumstances for Exceptional Learners, Episode 4: (Webinar Link) - "School Restart & the Importance of Involving Parents". Host Rebecca Muller, Special Educator and Advocate, Collingswood High School. This week we're encouraging the group to watch a special webinar, one in a series presented by Catalyst @ Penn GSE featuring winners of the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize for Education. Together, Catalyst and the McGraw Prize are advancing innovation in education through a growing array of programming. Please use the following link: https://www.gse.upenn.edu/event/webinar-school-restart-importance-involving-parents. As schools consider what it means to re-open, they will be faced with a multitude of challenges. How do they assess students and determine how much learning they have gained or lost? How do schools assign students to grades and classes? How do they create a plan to address the gaps that may have widened, and use the coming year to narrow them? How do they plan ahead for possible interruptions and re-starts to the 2020-21 school year due to COVID-19 outbreaks? These questions are daunting, but attempting to answer them without considering the role and input of parents is a recipe for failure. As a nonprofit that supports parents to ensure their children are on track for academic success, EdNavigator will talk about what they are hearing on the ground from parents, and how we can best meet their needs.

  • 4:00 PM - Thrive in EDU - Special Guest Mandy Froehlich. Host Rachelle Dene Poth talks with Mandy Froehlich, consultant, keynote speaker, author of The Fire Within, Divergent EDU, and Reignite the Flames. We will talk about preparing for the return to school. Some of our conversation will focus on mental health and wellness, SEL and supporting our students and their families, teacher disengagement, strategies for embracing the unknown. Join us for an important conversation and the opportunity to ask questions about these topics! Let's talk about the future of education and how to thrive!
  • 4:00 PM - REINVENTING.SCHOOL Episode #11 - "Basics of Education, Worldwide" with host Howard Blumenthal (USA) 
    Join Howard with his usual mix of expert and student voices as he discusses the global scope of students in school, enrollment, expectations, achievement.

What is the progress to date, and what happens next?
