Episode 3: “The Basics” of Remote and Hybrid Learning

This episode is the first in a series loosely based on The Distance Learning Playbook for Parents by Rosalind Wiseman, Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and John Hattie. If you’re interested in learning more about the topics in this episode, you can purchase a copy here.

In this episode, host Colleen Kaplan tackles the first chapter of The Distance Learning Playbook for Parents. Along the way, she endeavors to answer some of the most pressing questions for parents and caregivers today, including:

  • How can I establish successful routines for my child(ren) during remote learning?  
  • What elements of self-care are important for myself and my child(ren) to do on a daily basis?
  • Should I be listening in on my child(ren)’s Zoom calls for class?

To help answer those questions and more, Colleen also welcomes guest speaker Jillian Pettenuzzo, a guidance counselor at St. Francis High School in Wheaton, IL.  Jillian brings her extensive education experience as an English teacher, special education teacher, and counselor to the table to help parents and caregivers tackle their ongoing remote learning challenges.
