Summer Learning Academy Schedule
Registration is now closed. ISTE’s Summer Learning Academy ran from July 13-31, 2020 and the live portion has concluded. However, all participants still have access to courses, webinars and the learning community through October 31, 2020.
Up until that date, you may complete the microcourses, view recordings of webinars, and submit your final reflection. After October 31, participants will have read-only access to the Summer Learning Academy until December 31, 2020. During that time, you will be able to view all content but not complete assignments or quizzes in order to earn completion.
