The pandemic forced school districts around the world to abruptly change how they provide educational services to students. Teachers who may have had rudimentary technology skills suddenly found themselves trying to conduct remote classes over Zoom, some with more success than others.

The goal must be to ensure different components work collaboratively to support a personalized approach to education that leverages flexibility and enables adaptive learning. And the underlying motivation should be to improve the learning experience for students.
