Texas Learning Exchange (TxLx)

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an opportunity to rethink educational delivery models and how to address the needs of students in this current environment. The Texas Learning Exchange (TxLx) project aims to collaborate with Texas educational leaders to develop innovative pre-K-12 learning resources, solutions and models focused on equity, access and overall enhancement of teaching and learning. This project will be complementary to the work of the Texas Education Association’s Texas Home Learning Project and is managed by Getting Smart and Altitude Learning, in partnership with Educate Texas.

Operating under the assumption that the 2020-21 school year may need to alternate between school-based and remote instruction, the TxLx project team will work alongside a diverse Steering Committee to develop and implement a strategy to elevate and share resources and guides for districts to implement based on local needs and supports. Much has been learned over the last six months about key issues needed for ensuring the delivery of quality teaching and learning, both in person and remotely. With likely transitions between distance learning and hybrid models, continuity of instruction will be crucial in supporting learners and their families this school year. The TxLx project will generate iterative resources focused on equity, access and continuity of instruction.
