Facing the rise of online learning alternatives already put in place or under consideration at the moment, the important question about equitable access to Education remains. The author encourages us to think about what is at stake for students, their families, teachers and school admin, as well as educational systems with those questions:
What does successful distance learning look like?
How do you make distance learning accessible and equitable for all students?
More than 30,000 K-12 schools in the U.S. are being shuttered due to worries about the coronavirus outbreak. Educators who are experienced with distance learning warn that school closures are a serious threat to children’s academic progress, especially to those who are in low-income families or who have special needs.
Feedback is a crucial component of teacher professional development. The observations, whether unannounced or scheduled, typically involve an administrator physically sitting in a classroom and taking notes about a teacher’s performance for later discussion. That process can take days and the administrator’s presence can be distracting. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With today’s available technology, feedback can be instantaneous. With common mobile technology, administrators can observe a class from anywhere, offer live feedback, and record sessions for follow-up coaching.
Funding for educational technology is going to skyrocket now that the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic has revealed how critical it is in maintaining continuity of learning and facilitating impactful education, technology researcher Amber Case told attendees of a virtual conference on Wednesday. “We will need to work with limited resources and be clever,” Case said.
