EDVIEW 360 webinars, blogs,
and our all-new podcast series

Helping educators and students succeed is our passion. This year, we have partnered with experienced educators, inspiring thought leaders, and top education innovators to explore essential webinar, blog, and podcast topics in literacy, math, and professional development.

Our 2019–2020 webinar series begins in September with presentations focusing on timely topics such as social emotional learning (SEL), early childhood learning and literacy, and reading intervention strategies to support English language learners, students with dyslexia, and students who struggle to read. Join us for our first webinar of the season on September 18, “Young Learners and Literacy: Top Ways Educators Can Encourage, Intervene, and Make a Lasting Impact,” presented by our own Pam Austin, senior product marketing manager, and Shannon McClintock Miller, educator, author, and social media influencer.

Fall kicks off another exciting new blog series at EDVIEW 360. Look for engaging weekly articles and content about on-trend education topics such as making math fun, early childhood literacy, reading intervention strategies for middle school ELLs, and dyslexia and IDA practices, to name a few. Be sure to catch guest blogger, author, and renowned literacy expert Dr. Louisa Moats in October as we feature her special “Hard Words” post about the science of reading and successful literacy instruction.

Don’t miss our first-ever podcast in mid September with special guest Dr. Daniel Lopez of Denton Independent School District. We will explore ways to help students become invested in their learning and achieve more than they think they can. Listeners will learn about best practices, overcoming challenges, and how to transform your school or district with the #IAmMore™ movement.

Connect with us on social media to join engaging conversations as we celebrate successes, collaborate with the education community, and share stories about exciting happenings in the world of K–12 education. Find us on FacebookLinkedInInstagram, and Twitter.

Your ideas are important to us. Please share what you would like to see featured in future blogs, podcasts, and webinars. We are always looking for good ideas and new topics. There is no one better qualified than you to guide us.

Now that you are geared up, we know you are ready to make 2019–2020 the best school year yet. So, here’s to another great year motivating students and unlocking learning in your classrooms.
