Keynote Title: The Mindful Online Teacher

Abstract

While the rapid move to remote teaching posed huge technological challenges for schools and districts, the process also identified the need for more mindful use of online tools. Developed through conversations with parents, students, teachers, and administrators, this discussion presents several “mindful online teaching practices” that can guide educators as they engage their students and families in online learning environments.
