    Instructional Design for Distance Learning

    This edWeb podcats is hosted by edWeb.net.
    The webinar recording can be accessed here.

    It is safe to say that many of us feel unprepared for the current coronavirus pandemic. Even the most unflappable among us are impacted by social isolation, limited access to goods and services, joblessness, a faltering economy, and of course profound concerns about the physical and emotional health of our loved ones and ourselves. Most educators have had little or no training in designing instruction for distance learning which, as we are all learning, is very different from in-real-life instruction.
    Listen to Michelle Luhtala in a conversation about the instructional design of online learning, with high school librarian and Rutgers University lecturer Dr. Brenda Boyer. The two discuss easy-to-use design models to guide online instruction development, some rules of thumb to keep in mind, and tools and strategies to capture and retain student engagement. This conversation highlights resources to support audience needs.

    Digital Equity Strategies for Learning Beyond the Classroom

    Digital Equity Strategies for Learning Beyond the Classroom

    This edWeb podcast is sponsored by ClassLink and co-hosted by CoSN, AASA, and edWeb.net.
    The webinar recording can be accessed here.

    Although much progress has been made over the past two decades to equip America’s classrooms with high-speed internet access in order to leverage the power of technology tools for learning, robust internet access at home continues to be a challenge for millions of school-age children. As teachers and students rely on an ever-growing compendium of online resources for instruction and assessment of learning, access to those resources both at school and at home is a growing essential component for student academic success.
    Students without home access to high-quality broadband connectivity are at a disadvantage, unable to realize the full power of digital learning. The lack of home internet access also negatively impacts school-to-parent communication and makes it more difficult for parents to support their children academically. The promise of anywhere, anytime learning for all students requires that schools and communities come together to solve the challenges of digital inequity and the widening disconnect that impacts not only students but parents and guardians as well.
    Given the current challenges involved with the efforts to continue teaching and learning in the midst of multiple school closures, the issues involved in leading digital transformation are now more urgent and relevant than ever. Our three superintendents share strategies they have implemented to lead learning for all students in their school districts during these most unprecedented and complex times.
    This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders. 
    ClassLink ClassLink’s mission is to remove barriers between students and impactful education content.AASA, The Superintendents Association AASA advocates for equity for all students and develops and supports school system leaders.CoSN Visionary leaders empowering every learner to achieve their unique potential in a changing world.
