Getting Back to Normal Doesn't Mean Doing Things The way they have always been done
The 2020-21 school year is going to go down in the record books as a year that education changed drastically. Over the past year, we have all learned new skills and overcame many obstacles. Currently, it is looking like for the 21-22 school year we will be returning to a new normal in education. In this course, we will examine how you can incorporate skills you learned during virtual instruction and continue to build those skills in your classroom. When students return to school in September they are going to expect to continue to utilize some of the tools they have come accustomed to since moving to a more digital way of learning. We will examine how to best incorporate a digital workflow into your day-to-day, incorporate video into your instruction, student-created digital portfolios, live student engagement with Chromebooks, and group discussion around what you have learned over the past year. There is no charge for OCM Component districts, OCM Employees, or Syracuse Diocese teachers. This course is asynchronous and will be conducted using a Google Site for content and Google Classroom for turning in work. There is no live meeting.
