Justin Reich is the Co-Principal Investigator on a project that will develop, pilot, and refine a set of coordinated and complementary activities that teacher education programs can use in both online and face-to-face settings.

To more deeply understand the practice and professional experiences of educators during the 2020 extended school closures, we interviewed 40 teachers from across the country in public, charter, and private schools, at different grade levels, and in different subject areas.

In May 2020, we conducted four online design charrettes with school and district leaders, teachers, students, parents, and other stakeholders to translate design-based practices for leading school change into an online context.

We analyze the state education agency policy guidance concerning remote learning published by all 50 U.S. states by the end of March 2020.

The mission is to create and share high quality resources to facilitate digital and non-digital learning for K-12 and lifelong learners. By providing science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) based instructional materials and an open forum for users to share insights, we aim to inspire a diverse global community of educators, students, and parents to find innovative solutions to the challenges of learning at a distance
