Goals and Programs

In response to the way that COVID-19 has disrupted educational space, the goals of New Mexico ECHO for Education are as follows:

  1. Identify and share tools for online and virtual education with a broad group of New Mexicans who are involved and interested in education.
  2. Address geographic access and technological disparity with the ECHO model of democratizing information and its vision of All Teach-All Learn.
  3. Identify the needs of teachers, administrators, and other stakeholders in education.
  4. Share new and existing practices and strategies to help meet those needs.
  5. Create a shared resource library for participants.

In order to meet these goals, two programs have been created.

ECHO for Supporting and Inspiring Teachers
