Virtual School: April 8, 2020

What's on the agenda for virtual school today?

Today I'll take a close look at a number of assignments students have sent to me. That review will allow me to provide some feedback, chart who is doing what, and think about how these efforts will inform next week's virtual learning and teaching.

Similar to typical school, priorities with virtual school include keeping it interesting, motivating the learners, listening and responding to learners' questions, and providing feedback to student learning efforts. Teachers, to a large degree, are academic coaches, and not unlike sports coaches, our goal is to support our students for the academic win which, to me, is doing their best to make meaningful gains in positive learning endeavor.
