Message from the Director

LWilliams

Fellow Educators and Partners, 

The K20 Center at the University of Oklahoma, like most institutions around the country, have transitioned to new approaches for communicating, working, and learning. We’re making every effort to keep our students and their families—as well as our own—safe during the pandemic and spread of COVID-19. 

The K20 Center has adopted a center-wide telecommuting policy since March 2020. K20 staff members continue to actively communicate with our partner schools and stakeholders to discover creative ways to continue, and even grow, our support for Oklahoma’s schools and students. We have transitioned to safe and effective measures that allow us to work with each other and extend our outreach to schools. All services have been converted to online formats. We want you to know that continuing to serve you is a top priority, and our commitment to supporting education has never been stronger. 

Understanding and communication are more important than ever as we navigate this rapidly changing landscape. We’re all in this together, and we want to hear from you. Whether it’s sharing your ideas, your needs, or your concerns, we are listening—as peers, collaborators, and professionals with a common goal of helping Oklahoma students, their families, and the educators who serve them. We encourage you to reach out to us! 

As we continue to evolve our practices, we also want to remind you of the many online resources that the K20 Center has available to help you during this challenging time. Fortunately, we have been focused for many years on creating web-based materials—digital games, lessons, instructional strategies, and more—that are available at no cost to users. With a focus on flexible, technology-oriented learning, these resources are especially valuable right now. Explore K20’s online repository for a variety of education resources designed to support authentic, student-centered learning. 

In the meantime, know that, although these unforeseen circumstances have altered all our lives, the K20 Center remains unchanged in its mission to cultivate a collaborative network engaged in outreach and research. Together we will remain steadfast in our partnerships to provide the best educational experiences for the students of Oklahoma. 

In education,
