Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education and the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future (NCTAF) for the first in a series of webinars exploring the conditions needed to support great teaching for deeper learning.

This inaugural joint webinar will focus on the potential of technology to transform the teaching profession, increase opportunities for collaboration and professional learning, and improve student learning. Panelists will share data and experiences and discuss digital best practices to build teachers’ expertise and their ability to create powerful learning environments for their students. What opportunities exist now and in the near future for using technology to support great teaching? How can research results be connected with what is happening in practice? What recommendations should be put forward regarding technology integration and policy?
