Covid-19 has affected every aspect of life since its outbreak.  One of the hardest hit areas is Education.  This Summer a panel of experts put together an enlightening and informative online discussion of how to cope with learning during the pandemic.  The Summer 2020 Virtual Educators Workshop, "K-14 Education During Covid-19 in the US and Abroad" was an immense success.  Many speakers covered topics ranging from online learning to resources to help ease the onset of home schooling.  The presentations were recorded and they are available for viewing and downloading.
