The Dynamic Learning Project (DLP) seeks to improve educational equity and enhance student learning by supporting teachers with classroom coaching to better leverage technology in powerful and meaningful ways. While it seems like technology should be a tool for leveling the playing field at schools of differing socioeconomic and demographic populations, some schools and teachers require more support to conquer the learning curve associated with how best to leverage technology for learning.

Article | February 17, 2020

Artificial intelligence—code that learns—is likely to be humankind’s most important invention. It’s a 60-year-old idea that took off five years ago when fast chips enabled massive computing and sensors, cameras, and robots fed data-hungry algorithms. We’re a couple of years into a new age where machine learning (a functional subset of AI), big data and enabling technologies are transforming every sector.

How Online Learning Is A Powerful Recourse During The COVID-19 Pandemic

Article | March 21, 2020

Online learning is the best way to challenge the continuing threat of the coronavirus. With an increasing number of schools shutting down, students can continue to learn and evolve during this global pandemic (which is growing exponentially). The world woke up to "pneumonia of unknown cause" detected in Wuhan, and it has not been the same ever since. As soon as WHO declared COVID-19 (designated as 2019-nCoV) a pandemic, schools, colleges, and universities began to shutdown. Even countries are on lockdown (Italy), and many states have issued a suspension of or screening for air travel due to this novel virus. In fact, an uneven global response on whether or not school should be closed is also troubling.
