Announcing ForwardED, a Free Online Slow Conference for Educators

ForwardED blog #1 (1)-1Heinemann is delighted to announce ForwardED: Forward, Together in Education – a series by educators for educators, featuring authors and teacher practitioners in conversation about some of the biggest challenges facing the education community as we return to the classroom this fall. We’ll look at topics in literacy, leadership, and equity, and examine the boundaries of new legislation across the country, the intersection of research and classroom experience, ways to help kids navigate many different experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic, and how to teach and lead through this back-to-school season in a way that centers the best interests of children. This free, online “slow conference” will feature forty-minute to hour-long, evening sessions offered weekly, beginning the week of August 23rd and running through the end of October. Join thought leaders and educators like Cornelius Minor, Lucy Calkins, P. David Pearson, Kristi Mraz, Bob Kim, Steph Harvey, Chad Everett, Sara Ahmed, Sonja Cherry-Paul, Irene Fountas & Gay Su Pinnell, and many more as we seek to ask challenging questions, offer concrete guidance, and move our collective practice forward, together. 

We’ll kick off the series with two jam-packed weeks of keynote sessions followed by an additional weekly session every Thursday at 7:30 pm ET through the end of October. New presenters will be announced a week in advance and all sessions will be broadcast via Facebook Live on the Heinemann Facebook page. Following the live event, session recordings will be posted to the Heinemann website and YouTube channel.

You can stay up to date on all past and upcoming sessions at heinemann.com/ForwardTogether.
