Hello! My fellow educators! Just wanted to announce an amazing opportunity for our students, teachers and families during this time. Check out Global Youth Education Week! https://www.smore.com/hqm58
Remote Learning During Covid-19 - For Parents & Teachers - a Q&A
Thank you all for the great questions and shared wisdom. I'm signing off (dinner time on the East Coast!), but please keep the conversations going! @snobles
What are some ways to provide incentives to keep your kids motivated? Are there sites where you can create your own badges/awards?
I have a 9 year old and his school started remote classes this week...I cannot get him to pay attention for more than five or ten minutes at a time. Any suggestions to fix this?
How do you tell company leaders to be more mindful with parents who feel that they’re not being supported managing their workload while taking care of their kids? They think we’re “taking breaks.”
What's the most efficient way to incorporate breaks into the day now for my kids? I'm having a hard time transitioning them from work vs. break time esp being cooped up at home all day now
I’m trying but failing to keep my kids’ days structured so when they go back to school eventually, they’ll be able to focus. Any advice? My partner and I both work full time, I can’t teach full-time.
What are some things that my children can't learn in a remote setting and how can we help teach them? I'm thinking of ideas that are learned in more social situations and diverse environments.
As a parent working from home, what are some educational resources to keep your children occupied while you're trying to work?
I will be offline a little bit for some work meetings -- please keep talking amongst yourselves, and I look forward to rejoining later this afternoon!
As a parent, I'm curious about how you think the quality of education is now differing with the remote learning? Do you think this is a degradation of 25%? 50%? Or are there some benefits?
Teachers are doing a great work supporting families during remote learning, however I am afraid the quality of education is not going to be the same. What are your thoughts on the next school year?
I work in a fairly poor district, where lots of kids don't have access to laptops or computers at home. Can you recommend some resources or work-arounds?
This might seem a little dumb, but is it legal to read a book aloud either on a recorded video or live like on zoom?
Many of my responses and your comments are revolving around equity. How can we build equity into the foundation of school and learning design?
