Designing E-Learning Day Activities: Guidance and Best Practices for Educators (Online)

Event Description

As more school districts develop E-Learning Day Plans, it is vitally important that teachers develop strong and meaningful E-Learning Day activities for students. Recent legislation surrounding E-Learning Days requires that classroom activities be inclusive of students with special (IEP/504) needs, as well as students with no or limited Internet connectivity at home. This workshop will explore ways to design engaging instructional activities that will support student learning no matter what the weather brings.

Join us as we explore:
* E-Learning Day legislation and ISBE’s requirements for classroom activities
* Samples of successful E-Learning Day implementation and activities
* Guidance on how to include students with special (IEP/504) needs
* Strategies for including students with limited or no Internet connectivity at home

Remote Learning Days: Guidance and Best Practices for Administrators (Online)

Event Description

School districts may use approved E-Learning Days in lieu of emergency days. However, recent changes in legislation now include more stringent requirements to ensure participation and equity of access for all students.

How do you draft an E-Learning Plan that has more than a “snowball’s chance” of being accepted? This informative and interactive session will help school and district administrators navigate the new requirements and draft a high-quality and inclusive E-Learning Plan.

This workshop will provide:

An orientation to E-Learning Day legislation and ISBE’s requirements.
* Examples of successful E-Learning Day implementation.
* Ways to identify potential E-Learning Day issues, and how to plan accordingly.
* Guidance on what to include in your application to help you move closer to an acceptable E-Learning Day plan.
