ISS Deep Dive Sessions into Virtual Learning
During the 2020 school break, we hosted a professional development virtual learning series that featured a mixture of presentation, group work, and individual exploration. Each four-hour Deep Dive Session covered one of seven different content areas and brought educators together from all around the world. View the padlets from the sessions.

In this webinar series, Educators Supporting Educators: Transitions to Online Learning, ISS is bringing together educators who have been learning literally every day about how to quickly adapt their classroom teaching to new online learning environments. Check back regularly to see new webinars.
With the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), many schools made the switch to a 100% online learning environment. This is a snapshot of some of the work of many schools and individuals in regards to policy, technical operations, teaching and learning and community wellness.
