If you want clear ideas on how remote learning affected schools this past year, Pamela Mari is a good person to talk with. She was the first principal of Da Vinci Charter Academy, the Davis school district's "new tech" school, so she knows about using technology in education. She also taught in the district, and later worked as its director of student services. Her peers and the school board think so highly of her work and influence that they recently named the new tech hub at Da Vinci after her.
On today's Davisville she talks about Da Vinci, the tech hub (depicted here, and due to open in 2022-23), the shift to remote learning caused by the pandemic, the effect on students, what was lost, and what was gained. She offers advice on what to make of the experience. Students, teachers and parents might find her ideas essential as Davis looks ahead to the full return to classrooms this fall.
