The COVID-19 pandemic uprooted the entire education system. Students and teachers are now starting to return to school, and whether the setting is a physical classroom, virtual, or hybrid model, the new school year will be a big adjustment. Education in a pandemic has highlighted, along with the importance of internet connectivity and computing devices, issues of relevant curriculum, varying pedagogical approaches, and wellness concerns for both teachers and students.

On October 8th, US Tech Future and our event partner, Central Area of the Links, Incorporated (@calinksinc), hosted a discussion on these issues and possible solutions that families and educators can use in navigating the new classroom.
