172 - High-Flex Classrooms, or Just High Stress? Engaging Learners in the Post-Pandemic Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

We all thought last school year was the hardest year yet, but so far this one hasn't been a piece of cake either. Teaching in the post-pandemic classroom can still be stressful and overwhelming. During this session, we will look at how to manage students both in-person and virtually with engaging and interactive lessons. Join us to find out how Poly cameras can be true game changers, talk through effective teaching practices, and learn strategies to help connect students in the classroom and at home.
