Thursday, April 23, 2020
12:00 PM CST


COVID-19 has created global disruption on a scale not seen in the modern era. The education sector, in particular, has been deeply impacted. In fact, a March 2020 report by the United Nations indicates that some 300 million schoolchildren worldwide unable to continue with school as a result of the outbreak. The domestic scope is just as daunting: In a single Seattle school district, the virus has forced nearly 24,000 students out of in-person classes. The solution many schools nationwide are turning to is remote learning. While some districts are well-prepared for the shift, many find themselves without the needed technology to enable remote learning at all.
Join us on April 23 at 1 p.m. for “Covid-19 and Education: Remote Learning Tech Solutions,” a webinar from Comcast Business. We’ll explore the current state of remote learning, from both educational and technology infrastructure perspectives; the current technology needs for educators; how the ramp-up has gone thus far; how networks and technologies will shift going forward; and what the remote learning landscape may look like in the long term.
