Like many teachers, I have been drinking from the “firehose of information” when it comes to the resources, technology tools, and reflections on what is working or not working in distance learning. I have been sharing articles with friends and educators, as well as Tweeting (@DigitalNomadRob) some that have resonated with me. Here are a few standout sources. I will continue to add ones that I think are keepers and worth a read. These may appeal to parents as well.
Revising Your Teaching Philosophy for This Crisis (Edutopia)
“Keeping a clear head during a crisis is difficult, but drawing on our beliefs can guide us through. Condensing your teaching philosophy to short statements will help you recall what is important in these moments and will help keep you centered and clear—and applying it to your work will help you chart a path forward for everyone.” – Aaron Tombrella
How Can Educators Tap Into Research to Increase Engagement During Remote Learning? (Edsurge)
Helpful Online Resources for Teaching ELLs (Edutopia) – There are some great links to resources within this article.
“If I Knew Then…”: A School Leader Reflects on Ten Weeks of Learning Online (Global Online Academy) – excellent suggestions!
A Letter to Educators Teaching Online for the First Time (Edsurge)
The job of an online teacher is the job of an offline teacher is the job of a teacher. Connect to people and help them to feel connected to you and to the dimension of the world you are leading them to experience. Connect your students to one another in a way that enables them not only to learn content from one another, but also to catch life experiences from one another—to shape one another in the way that only peers can. It’s that simple … and it’s that complex.” – Reshan Richards and Stephen J. Valentine
