Andrew Fuller: Remote learning tips and ideas for teachers - The Parents' Website - 0 views

  •  
    "Remote learning is a major opportunity for schools to refine their lesson planning and delivery. The efforts of teachers to adapt classes to online platforms has been nothing less than heroic. Now we have the chance to incorporate the ingredients that create effective remote learning, accelerate expertise and enhance the experience of our students.  The rapid shift to remote learning has been unprecedented and we are all learning as we go through this. At its worst, remote learning can be disorienting and disconnecting. We all need to be innovative in creating learning that is engaging and involving for our students. The ideas in this paper are derived from the author's research and work with schools of the air and distance education as well as his work with students who have been unable to attend school due to mental health issues.  "

    Useful presentation."Understanding the difference between a fact and an opinion isn't difficult. What matters is being able to apply that knowledge responsibly. When someone presents information in the form of a fact, like "the blue whale is the largest animal on earth." They are stating something that can be proven with evidence. That's different from an opinion, like "blue whales are the most beautiful whales." Here, they are sharing a personal belief that can't be proven"
