On Wednesday, April 1st, Piper conducted a webinar on “Best Practices for Facilitating Remote Learning” for educators. We had a chance to share the best practices that we know from our experience as well as many of the wonderful educators in our communities!
This webinar included information on how to provide an impactful learning experience for students remotely and included many implementation tips from educators in the Piper community. We provided and discussed a plethora of resources you can use to accommodate the new teaching normal as you transition to digital learning protocols.
Here are some some other tips and tricks that participants shared with us during and after the webinar:
- Creating a subject website so all teachers utilize the same curriculum, videos, etc. so that all parents, teachers, etc have one access spot. We are practicing google meet with one another. -Donna LoPresto
- We have tried to get all teachers classroom rosters uploaded to Google classroom, deploy technology (devices and hot spots), provide support to teachers via Zoom and develop online protocols for teacher-student interaction . -Christopher Hauc
- Padlet's pretty good for discussion boards -therealjohntan
- The program on Pearson learnings give range dates and allow teachers to control the amount of times a student can retake something -Joseline Rueda
- +1 on the recommendation for Nearpod and Kahoot -Chris
- Pear deck works very well with google slides -michelle
