What Can Distance Learning Accountability Look Like? How do we ensure accountability for our students during hybrid or distance learning? Assessments have 4 different purposes: 1) drill and practice, 2) rehearsal, 3) authentic performance, 4) reflection. How we design our assessments will impact how effective they are at meeting these purposes. This session focuses on distance learning assessment design and maximizing the accountability of students.

Now more than ever teachers are being called upon to support social-emotional learning in addition to meeting educational goals. In the face of the Covid-19 pandemic, educators are navigating new technology, new ways of teaching, and unimaginable student stressors all while trying to ‘keep it together’ for themselves and for their families. Teachers are Heroes. They’re showing up to provide comfort and familiarity during uncertain times.

School schedules, learning spaces, student groupings and personnel configurations have all been affected by Covid-19. These educational structures have been disrupted and have to be re-imagined. What ‘Bold Moves’ can we take to ensure that digital learning environments are as effective as traditional ones? The gap between onsite and online learning may not be as wide as we think and used together might be the perfect hybrid learning environment.

I hope this message finds you well and curious about the future of education. Teaching and learning online offers a unique opportunity to engage faculty and students in a novel way. Virtual classrooms support mastery of digital tools as well as collaboration with broad and diverse learning communities.

We will look at the relationship between these structures, and how to research and develop programs tailored to the student population in your school. Action plans will be developed onsite.

Designing Structures for Modern Learning - If we have new kinds of learners, then we need refreshed contemporary and responsive learning environments. We need new kinds of schools. Even if the most creative and competent teachers shape an emerging curriculum employing dynamic learning strategies, they will be restricted - and most important, their students will be restricted - by the parameters of the school program.

Thinking About Curriculum Mapping Curriculum Mapping can be described as the relationship between two sides of a coin. The first side is the creation of a database which includes the essential elements of a curriculum map. The other side of the coin is the review process - examining, discussing and revising maps within and across disciplines and grade levels. Dr. Marie Hubley Alcock provides an overview of curriculum mapping...
