Woke. Wednesday S4 E4 Rockin’ Remote Learning #3
This episode! Traci has walked us through our set up for teaching virtually. She transitions to the next level in this episode. From setup to start up. Start up?
She makes it clear with this example:
We go to great lengths to make our homes warms, inviting, and welcoming. We take time to the get the right decor to create the ambiance, the atmosphere that stands on its own to say, “Welcome.”
Shouldn’t the same be true when our students prepare to walk into our classrooms virtually?
Reimagine environment. Rethink startup. Set the stage.
Traci believes in “giving virtual students the exact same experience that they would have if they were in person.”
“Parental relationships and those power relationships, it’s at the core of my calling, my why. It happens organically in my classroom…I am committed, determined, and steadfast to create that exact same environment virtually.”
The challenge: Compare the online start up with the in person walk up.
This is a must-listen episode for administrators and educators to support each other, brainstorm, have powerful dialogue as you reimagine the virtual learning environment.
