What is happening in k-12 schools is NOT Intentionally designed-online learning. It is remote access, emergency digital learning. The only way we would have online learning is if Educators had the time & prod learning to develop online learning environments/ resources. We didn’t. https://t.co/p8Xjh9mAPa
@verenanz Here’s a different perspective. This is really Pandemic Learning - meaning that teachers had to pivot w/o warning, neither teachers nor students had practiced or were prepared for this, & importantly, learning was being conducted under the stress of the corona virus/quarantine.
@verenanz We did have time, I approached Gavin Williamson and the Department of Education about 13 weeks before lockdown and 4 weeks before lockdown both were turned down. We had training and software ideas. All private schools in Oxfordshire prepped from February.
@verenanz @courosa Purely anecdotal comments about whether this is or is not working for kids. I have seen this type of learning work in ways that our previous face to face methods were not. The biggest loss our kids are currently facing is social connection, not learning.
