Explore the future of education at The Anywhere School

Have you signed up for Google for Education’s event, ‘The Anywhere School’ yet? It’s a global back to school event taking place online August 11 - 12 to celebrate educators and explore the future of education. With thought-provoking panels, keynotes, product announcements, live demos, and more, we’ve put together everything you need to know about this unique event. Including what not to miss and how & when you can check out our session ‘Minimize Barriers, Maximize Student Engagement’ with Texthelper Jason. 

This year we experienced educational disruption at a scale we've never seen before and while back to school will look different, this time educators will be better prepared instead of being dropped into remote and online learning with no warning. 

Join us August 11-12 for Google for Education’s ‘The Anywhere School’ helping teachers get back to school ready, with thought leaders and changemakers from around the world sharing their perspectives on issues including equity, student emotional and social well-being, hybrid and distance learning, and more. 

Minimize Barriers, Maximize Student Engagement 

By registering, you’ll get a virtual front-row seat for this event featuring 17 hours of around-the-clock content and our very own Jason Carroll (Director of Product Management at Texthelp) will be kicking off his session on August 11th at 5.40pm ET looking at how we can use the recent wave of change to our advantage. 

Using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) he’ll be exploring how software can help overcome the barriers to student engagement - both on and offline. Tune in live or watch any of the sessions on demand if they clash with your busy back to school schedule.
