DAO Webinar Series 2020

The Davidson Academy Online team will be hosting a series of webinars to share best practices in online learning. This webinar series is open to educators and parents and is one of the ways that we give back to the larger community of online and gifted education. While our online practices have been honed over years of research and implementation, we believe that attendees will be able to learn something valuable, regardless of their comfort level with technology. Additionally, while our curriculum is specifically designed for profoundly gifted students, our pedagogical practices are effective with all learners and in all classrooms.

The Davidson Academy is a public school dedicated to serving the needs of profoundly gifted students. Our online campus is a game-changer for profoundly gifted students. Open to students living anywhere in the United States, this accredited online option builds off the one-of-a-kind, the exceptional framework put in place by the Davidson Academy's Reno day school during the last decade. The result is a robust online community where students thrive. Since 2006, the Davidson Academy's Reno campus has been recognized as the best option for families with profoundly gifted middle and high school students living in the Reno area. Now, for those unable to relocate to Reno, the online campus offers a rigorous academic environment where students can learn and interact with same-age, intellectual peers.

Our webinar series will take place on Mondays at 1 pm PT. Please join us for the following webinars (separate registration is required for each event):
