Resources for Remote and Blended Learning are Intended to sustain highly effective pedagogy in the digital environment. The resources are designed to support instructional practices through a blended learning approach within synchronous and asynchronous opportunities across all content areas.
Aligned Asynchronous Professional Learning Modules (APLMs)
Best Practices to Support Asynchronous Instruction
QN Facilitators: Gina Ceparano & Rahjia Vandiver
In this asynchronous webinar, participants examine asynchronous pedagogical practices suggested in the Blended Learning and Content Specific Considerations guidance document. These practices include implementing video lessons to deliver explicit instruction and utilizing collaborative documents to promote peer discussion and provide effective feedback. Additionally, participants will build an understanding of how to plan asynchronous instruction using the Priority Learning Standards and Learning Maps.
Leaders' Tools for Remote Instruction
QN Facilitators: Daniel Racic and Susan Ackert
During this asynchronous webinar, administrators will explore how to use The Framework for Remote Teaching and accompanying resources to support remote instruction, with a specific focus on: identifying instructional focus areas, providing high-quality feedback, and generating next steps for educators. A number of resources, including an Observation Tracker and Promising Practices library template are included on the syllabus.
Formative Assessment with Google Forms
QN Facilitators: Lisa Elkaabi & Anna McDonald
During the Google Forms asynchronous webinar, participants learn how to administer and leverage formative assessments with Google Forms at different stages of a student’s learning experience. Participants will examine how to utilize the data strategically from the responses tab to inform instructional next steps and explore ways to shift toward a mastery-based learning approach by embedding feedback and allowing revision within the Google Forms.
