WATESOLers Sharing Best Remote Learning Practices
Calling for action!
As you reflect on the second half of the Spring term (Adult Ed, K-12, Higher Ed), you probably realize that you’ve tried out and implemented some pretty unique or super easy, yet, truly educational teaching practices or methods in order to keep your students engaged while learning remotely.
Would you be willing to share them with your fellow WATESOLers?
You can share one or more of your tips and tricks! There is no limit!
Please “show and share” one of your teaching practices through a video demonstration on Flipgrid. (Check out this Flipgrid tutorial first!) The video demo and related materials will be shared on the WATESOL website, too, under 'GROUPS' - Special Interest Groups.
If you'd like to participate, please add any of the following items to an organized Google Doc, send the doc link (check the sharing settings) to email@example.com, AND add them to your Flipgrid video:
A task template
Worksheets or other materials
YouTube or Zoom tutorial videos about the promoted online tool
A list of the pros and cons/caveats of the teaching practice or tool
