What lessons has education learned through remote learning that should continue even when remote learning ends?

Our biggest classroom takeaway has been a shift from Homework & Classtime to “Syncrhonous” vs. “Asynchronous” learning opportunities. Not all classwork requires teacher presence and attention and not all homework can be done without the input of an instructor.

In both synchronous and asynchronous remote learning lessons, how do we appreciate and honor students’ cultural identities and build a positive classroom culture with meaningful learning experiences?

What so you think the transition will look like once school is back to normal? Considering that right now there is no option but to be learning remotely, but once we return, will the tech portion of learning continue and improve in the classroom or revert back to old normalcy?

What do you suggest a teacher does to inspire interaction with the video, rather than just a sit & get? I think we can all agree “just watching” isn’t enough, no matter how great the video is.

How will we make sure to define the “new normal” and not let our educators become complacent and go back to their old ways? How do we make sure that all these new skills they’ve acquired for this moment of crisis will carry on into their day-to-day education?

@ronald.m.nober I like this question. I think each district should reflect upon these last few months and even share their findings with other districts. Some teachers have been forced out of their comfort zone and are really excelling in regards to creating instructional videos. This doesn’t have to stop if and when we return to the brick and mortar building. These videos also don’t have to go away. Teachers should continue creating content and making these available for students. These could be used for a variety of reasons such as during academic assist periods or for students who may have missed school/class on a particular day, or even for the parents to review to be able to help their child.

These are also an amazing resource to begin to implement Universal Design For Learning (UDL). Allow students to learn in the way best for them. lecture, video, reading text,… whatever it may be this allows that to begin. It can even be a tool to extend learning for the student who is completed work and needs to be challenged or that student who needs a little more instruction. Instead of differentiation for a few, UDL for all.

One of the questions I am being asked is how to promote independent reading and the strategies needed to keep students engaged. What ways do you accomplish these things?

I think one of the best ways to be a leader is to reach out - no matter what. Even if there is resistance, it is important to go the extra mile and ask. So many people are still afraid to ask for help, when we offer it, somehow it makes their load lighter.
