Remote Learning: 6-Lesson Workshop to Get You Going!
Last week, I wrote a blog about distance learning. You can read it here. The number of questions I received revealed a strong need for this workshop. If you want an introduction to distance learning, hop over to last week’s post, and meet me back here to begin the Remote Learning Workshop.
Schools around our country are closing with no warning and without a clue as to how long the Coronavirus will affect our school system.
I’ve put together a workshop that will teach you step-by-step how to use your own regular resources along with some basic (and free!) technologies to facilitate remote learning.
Work through each lesson to learn how to create a distance learning path.
This short video will introduce you to the types of materials and technologies that will help you create a remote learning path for your students using basic resources you already have and love.
Lesson 1: Plan & Structure Your Distance Learning Path
This lesson will teach you how to plan for your remote teaching. It will introduce you to the structure of a digital learning path.
Lesson 2: Remote Teaching (New Content & More)
This lesson is about teaching your students remotely using video. It will show you how to use videos from YouTube or how to create your own videos.
Lesson 3: Distance Learning Practice Opportunities
This lesson will teach you how to take your regular resources you would use in a face-to-face environment and tweak them for online learning.
Lesson 4: Remote Learning Assessment Opportunities
This lesson will teach you how to add assessment components to your remote lessons so that students can self-assess, and so that you can keep track of how your students are doing.
Lesson 5: Online Communication

Lesson 6: Facilitating Remote Learning
This lesson teaches you how to wrap up your remote learning path, share the learning materials with your students, and monitor their progress. The second video (6-B) shows you how you can access your students’ learning paths once they are working on their own copies.
