Embracing Failure In A Remote Learning World with Carl Hooker

Love it or hate it – remote learning has become part of daily life for many of us.

We have all been faced with change these last few months and with that, comes success and failure. Everyone has had to cope with the “new normal” and adjust their lives in different ways. When it comes to our kids, they are not only following our lead, but depending on us to help guide them during remote school as at-home learning coaches. During this Free webinar, we’ll reflect on our failures and how to turn those into learning opportunities for our kids during this unique time in our lives.

Carl Hooker, educator and author of the “Mobile Learning Mindset” book series, has always held one core belief – kids need to drive their own learning. He realizes the challenges in our current public educational institutions and meets them head on.

“Participants will find Carl to be one of the most creative, knowledgeable, and entertaining speakers they will see. He is a master in connecting learning, technology, innovation, and motivation because he understands the needs of parents, teachers, and their students.” – Dr. Brian Barnhart, Superintendent, Western Springs School District 101
