eLearning Help from CES Instructional Coaches
The purpose of this page is to give teachers resources to help them develop & maintain an online learning environment including example lessons in READING, MATH, & SCIENCE with the focus on communication, instruction and feedback.
Some have dabbled, and others have soared in using online learning platforms for blended & flipped learning, but due to school closure, teachers are working with urgency, diligence and possibly a little apprehension to set up platforms and procedures to continue teaching and learning remotely. As we jump in with hands-on, just-in-time experience in researching, exploring and learning new tools for providing instruction, communication and feedback to our students, hopefully we will see the potential online learning has to amplify learning.
