Return to School In a Post-Pandemic World – Webinar

Join Netsync’s Head of Digital Business Mark Lynd on Thursday, July 9th at 2pm as he moderates a webinar with industry leaders to address what educators the world over have never experienced ― Returning to School in a Post-Pandemic World. You will get answers to the  question that has been on educators’ minds for months: How are we going to re-open the schools and educate students while keeping them, the faculty, and staff safe?

You’ll hear presentations and real-world scenarios from technology leaders in education, including: Bryon Kolbeck, Chief of Technology, LISD, who will discuss his district’s distance learning implementation prior to the summer break, including strategies to ensure the safety of students, teachers, and administrators when they return to school in the fall.

Lenny Schad, Chief Information & Innovation Officer, will present on the current state of schools, including challenges related to funding.

Mike Griffin, Netsync’s Collaboration & IoT Practice Manager, will discuss hybrid technology models related to distance learning.

There will be Q&A following our speakers’ presentations, so you will have the opportunity to ask questions about topics that are at the top of your mind.
