Digital Learning Specialists at the Maine Department of Education are hosting a Remote Learning 101 professional learning series. The series is currently underway and consists of three modules total. Sessions are being recorded and will be posted to the Maine DOE website and YouTube Channel as they happen.
The first module of the series provides an overview of getting started with remote learning, the fundamentals of engaging in a virtual environment, including establishing classroom management practices, setting norms, digital citizenship, and more. The second module of the series explores the key components of designing and delivering effective instruction in a remote learning environment. Building upon the first module, we look at different models, the elements within them, and the various digital tools that can aid in implementing them. The third module of the series focuses on tying everything together within a remote classroom. We look at bringing students into the process as they connect with the content, with each other, and with the educator(s) to encourage students to make deep connections and demonstrate their understanding in ways that are new and exciting.
