Are you supporting teachers as they pivot to online learning and virtual classrooms? Share these tips from a veteran online teacher:

  • Consider recording some lectures and sending them to students. Students who struggle with internet access may miss a live lecture.
  • Keep recorded videos short—around 15 minutes. A series of short videos is more effective than one long video.
  • Show your face. Studies show that students are more engaged when they can see you.
  • Set up virtual office hours for students who need one-on-one attention.

Make time for self-care

The new reality of remote learning is challenging for educators and students alike. Self-care is paramount during these uncertain times. Here are a few strategies to help you prioritize personal health:

  • Maintain consistent sleep and wake times that allow for plenty of sleep. Consider tracking your sleep with an app that measures sleep quality.
  • Establish a daily exercise schedule. Take a brisk walk or download a free fitness app.
  • Carve out time to relax. Schedule activities that promote calm, such as reading, working on puzzles or meditating.
  • Connect with others. Use video conference tools to stay in touch with family and friends. You can even share a meal online!

A new nationwide poll conducted by the Collaborative for Student Success shows that 65% of teachers favor starting next year with “regularly scheduled instruction” rather than extending next school year, revisiting material from the end of this school year or offering students the option to repeat a grade.
