Overview

Research has shown that traditional remediation isn’t always successful at closing learning gaps. To reimagine remediation, we must differentiate it for the needs of all students through targeted supports. Technology plays a huge role in making this replicable and sustainable and for providing those personalized pathways that can drive student success. In coaching or a Virtual Workshop, participants will:

  • Define how differentiated and targeted support can create successful remediation for students
  • Explore the use of tech tools in remediation to create more sustainable systems
  • Build and get peer feedback on their plan for remediation

Audience

This session is designed for teachers, coaches, and leaders who want to think about remediation differently through the lens of differentiation and technology integration in an effort to accelerate learning. This workshop is targeted to support educators to launch into the school year with the ability to articulate the shifts in practice needed to address academic gaps and unfinished learning that occurred during COVID.
