Day 26 (Day 1 Week 6) Learning from home: We are teaching and they are learning

From GOA’s article, Flexibility, Wellness, Sustainability: GOA’s Review of School Schedules for Learning Online by Eric Hudson:

    1. Flexibility: Learning and working remotely looks different from student to student, family to family, and educator to educator. Flexibility in schedule is important.
    2. Wellness: Worry about screen time, stress, and pace while learning remotely drove many schools to consider carefully how much and how often students were expected to be on video calls.
    3. Sustainability: Maintaining a rigid schedule of primarily synchronous learning is overly demanding for most students and teachers, and it was impossible for most international and boarding school respondents, where students, educators, and their families are spread across as many as 12 different time zones.

Again and again, we are asked, “will they be behind next year?”

While school does not look like school because we are all at home, our teachers are working in teams, communicating with the grade-level teachers around them. We will be ready in the fall. Our students will be ready in the fall.

Here are some examples, artifacts, and evidence of learning from home:

While school does not look like school because we are all at home, our teachers are working in teams, communicating with the grade-level teachers around them. We will be ready in the fall. Our students will be ready in the fall.

We are teaching and they are learning.
