A4LNewsletter-Sept2020The New 'Normal'... Let's Hope Not!
Foreword by Larry Fruth II PhD, CEO/Exec Director, A4L Community

Being a non-profit organization made up of hundreds of volunteers – both end users and marketplace providers – the “let’s get back to school” focus has provided some interesting informal research data points: We look at educational technology differently,  We look at teachers differently, We look at marketplace providers differently, We look at learning differently.

I hope you read through the newsletter to see how the Community is stepping up to allow for these changes to take place and make sure “it just works”.  Our new mantra is A4L/SDPC is a Community “connecting and securing effective learning ecosystems” and we hope you see that in all the updates coming your way.

Be safe and let us keep moving together!
