As many of us are doing distance learning at this point, there are a lot of questions and concerns about how to most effectively teach our students.
If you haven't seen it yet, the IB School Leadership site has good advice about distance learning written by Chris Wright.
In addition, there are a lot of good ideas about there - both from those of you who have already been shut down for a while and those of you with e-learning experience.
This section of the site has the goal of modeling good practice for distance education - with the hope that we will all be back in our classrooms soon.
The goal of this part of the site is to share best practices. I will be posting my daily plans so that you can get a sense of what I am doing. The goal is NOT to provide lesson plans for every possible topic but to show ways of getting students to do more than just read and take multiple-choice quizzes.
As many of you out there have your own ideas about e-learning, if you would like to share something that you have done, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will create a page with your idea to share with the community. Please make sure that your ideas are concise and that you provide any appropriate links. Models of student work should be without names and ideally, should have the permission of the student to be posted.
This part of the site will be free and will not require login.
