So when we think about “getting back to normal” … there is a new normal. Technology was an integral part in helping us to maneuver through the pandemic. We have all learned new skills and have created a new normal. How can we use technology to do what before was difficult or impossible? How do we move all students OFF the same pacing guide? How do we recognize that many students (and teachers) go through a variety of challenges and traumas? How do we rethink what is even important to teach?
