Keep Students Engaged With Remote Learning Resources

Event Description

Designing Remote Learning Activities: Best Practices for Educators

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

Podcast: Adapting E-Learning to Remote Learning

This podcast episode focuses on how two school districts, one suburban and one rural, are adjusting their existing e-learning plans to a longer-term remote learning situation. Shannon Duling is the superintendent of Princeville Community Unit School District 326 in rural central Illinois. John Connolly is the Chief Technology Officer in suburban Consolidated Community High School District 230. Together we discuss the surprising commonalities in their approaches to adapting their existing e-learning plans to our current reality of longer-term remote learning. 

This episode was recorded just before the State of Illinois had released their guidelines supporting remote learning. The approaches taken by each of these very different school districts aligns nicely to the state guidelines and provides valuable insight into the process of adapting e-learning plans, which were designed for just a day or two of instructional support, into longer-term remote learning plans.
