As a response to COVID-19 and the increased dependence on digital learning and education, the Highly Efficacious, Effective and Efficient Educators (H.E.), will present 22 total L.I.V.E. lessons that will focus on individual areas of teacher efficacy, advocacy and support and combine seminars with instructional and strategy. The word “LIVE” is a double entendre, both as a nod to the lessons’ streaming format and an acronym for Learning In Vibrant Environments.

The 22 Lesson Series will be hosted every Tuesday and Thursday, 6:30 pm EST/5:30pm CST, beginning June 9 through August 28, 2020

These L.I.V.E. Lessons will be streamed to each of DTEC-TAG’s social media platforms on Facebook, Periscope/Twitter & DREF’s LinkedIn Page[LC1] [p2] . A team of four TAG Equity Warriors – trained teacher leaders, change agents, and educational advocates – have taken the lead on curating content and driving engagement. Each L.I.V.E. lesson will vary by topic, grade level and audience but all will include discussions around instruction, policy and distance learning strategies for students, teachers, parents, district administrators and other community stakeholders. The hosts, set to feature top educators like school leadership expert Principal Kafele, will integrate these topics in the lessons based on their skillset and expertise.
