Big Idea

Learning online is still learning. We need to design learning so that every student is engaged and every student can be successful. When you move the learning online, new barriers and opportunities emerge. What we can’t lose sight of is the student. Our empathy is for the learner first, and the outcomes second. 
Good ideas become great ideas when they’re given the time, space, and collaborative energy to incubate.
