Preparing for Fall 2021:
Developing a Plan for All Learning
featuring Meg Ormiston
An ISBE Approved Provider
Access Period: Today thru August 30
Meg shares what we will need to return to full learning as we transition to what's next in our learning journey: "We have no idea what fall 2021 will look like, but if I were a school administrator I would want my teachers prepared for anything. Many districts are talking about options for families with some face-to-face and remote as a possibility. In addition, across the great state of Illinois, we will have many teachers in need of professional
development hours this summer, and I feel like these workshops are the new methods classes for teachers today using new instructional strategies and digital tools."
Each of the four workshops is aligned to the ISTE Standards. Teachers and administrators scaffold from teacher-driven classrooms to NOW Learning student-driven classrooms. The content of the workshops focuses on instructional strategies that work in classrooms, hybrid, or Flex-learning environments using a variety of technology tools. Each video-based workshop is structured with five sections and three interactive discussion connections in each. Teachers access the workshops asynchronous from any computer, or on the app for learning on the go at any time, at any pace, and at any place. Along with the workshops, everyone engages in the vibrant learning community on our own social learning network.
