A New Network for a Changed World
Morgan, Nick; Foster, Elizabeth; George, Melinda
Learning Professional, v42 n1 p28-31 Feb 2021
Among the things that will be remembered about the year 2020 are phrases like "You're still on mute" and "Can I share my screen?" They are emblematic of how educators have been challenged to navigate uncharted waters of remote learning and overnight technological adaptation. To quote another phrase that will be remembered as a cliché, "These are unprecedented times." Learning Forward's newest network, Design Professional Learning for a Virtual World (DPLV), is designed to meet educators' pressing needs in this unusual moment by supporting districts and states with proactive planning tools and processes. Learning Forward and DPLV's first cohort of nine district and state education agency members are collaborating on how to stay strategic through the compounding challenges of responding to COVID-19, a national reckoning with racial injustice, and growing fiscal uncertainty caused by a mix of public health and public policy developments. This article describes the work of the DPLV as they engage in a planning process with customized coaching tailored to their local contexts and needs during and beyond the pandemic.
