Today, I sit down with Kelcie Blankenship and Claire McCoy to have a conversation around a topic that they are quickly getting familiar with, remote learning. Remote learning is a topic that most public educators have limited knowledge and experience in navigating, but something almost all educators are learning to navigate during the Covid-19 pandemic.
What to Listen for:
- What are some ways that teachers can engage their students virtually during school closures?
- How can teachers work to set norms and establish routines with their students during school closures?
- What are some challenges that teachers may face when it comes to reaching their students remotely?
- How can teachers overcome these challenges?
- How can you show empathy and concern through a computer screen?
- How can you connect with families that might not have reliable internet service or access to an electronic device?
- What lessons can be learned from this unprecedented time?
- Where can teachers begin with engaging students virtually who may be hesitant?
My hope is that this episode encourages you to investigate new ways to provide quality instruction and inspires you to develop creative ways to connect with your students and their families.
