What Are Your Questions/Concerns About Remote Teaching?

By Larry Ferlazzo — April 06, 2020 1 min read

I’ve published an 11-part series about transitioning to remote learning, as well as sharing a popular video with additional advice.

A video for parents will be available later this week, and later this month, this blog will present two additional series—one with teachers sharing how their first four weeks of distance learning has gone and another highlighting contributions from students offering their perspectives.

In addition to all these resources, I’ll be posting columns and/or videos answering questions or responding to specific concerns teachers have about their online teaching.

I invite teachers to share those questions or concerns several ways:

* By leaving a comment on this blog

* By sending an email to me at at lferlazzo@epe.org

* By contacting me on Twitter at @Larryferlazzo

Please limit your questions to ones about issues that are within the ability of an individual teacher to control. In other words, please don’t ask about inept rollouts from districts or the lack of student devices or home internet access. Those are huge issues that must be confronted! And I’ll be discussing them in future posts. However, this particular series will be focused on challenges that we are dealing with in our online classes today and tomorrow and that we have to figure out how to deal with in our upcoming lesson plans.

I’ll try to respond to them or, even better, I’ll get smarter and more experienced educators to contribute answers.

I’ll look forward to your questions!
