This past spring you likely had to flex time like never before in the classroom. Many teacher’s first encounters with asynchronous learning was harsh. After all, many thought they had to be present for students to be learning; would others judge them if the students were not working synchronously with them online?
The physical absence of the teacher is not the absence of learning many educators learned this past spring. Which activities did you try, will try this fall, will never try again asynchronously? Which activities are ones you will try again?
Share the idea of blogging with your colleagues as a way to process the end of the year that wasn’t. Take the ideas of the friends in this challenge and hopefully build a year prepared for multiple formats!
Describe your mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning activities
from last spring/will provide this fall?
