Online Learning - Tips and Tricks that Work

Join Patty, Whitney, and Holly, educators at SIDES, as we dig deep into our online bag of tricks and tips for online teaching strategies that work at all levels K-12. We will draw from tried and true examples, including conducting an online story time and book talks, creating engaging educational videos, and conducting online virtual classes with students who have never met in person. Coupled with practical examples, we will also dig deeper into current research and our understanding of online pedagogy as an effective and amazing tool to promote student learning. You will leave this session with the confidence to jump into an online teaching platform or to use online tools to support your classroom practice.
