Newly released data from the Canopy project provide an overview of how 200+ schools are innovating during the COVID-19 era. In this webinar, we will:
- Describe the Canopy Project’s crowdsourced approach to building collective knowledge on a more diverse set of innovative schools across the country.
- Share trends in how the most innovative schools are redesigning their models to advance personalization, nurture relationships, build an anti-racist society, and ensure well-being for every student.
- Invite discussion on emerging trends in school model innovation and on what kinds of analyses the Canopy project should prioritize moving forward.
- Provide guided access to an interactive data portal that allows education leaders, school designers, and researchers to see both the “trees”—individual schools—and the whole “forest” of schools that are innovating.
- Understand the goals and function of the Canopy project (to build collective knowledge via open data on innovative school models, lift up a diverse set of schools via nationwide crowdsourcing, etc.).
- Know how to use the data portal to answer your own learning questions.
- Have one concrete idea for how to use the project’s resources to make progress on a pre-existing question or goal (i.e., solve one of your pre-existing “jobs to be done”).
Target Audience: Educators, system leaders, policymakers, intermediary/third-party organizations, researchers, and anyone who wants to see a field-wide overview of innovative learning models
