Idea Starter #1: Remote Learning

How might we learn from the extraordinary creativity emerging from this mass experiment in remote learning?

 Research shows that times of crisis often provoke periods of intense learning and experimentation. Without much warning, educators, families, and students were thrust into a mass experiment in learning from home. We suspect that when we look back on this time, we’ll see that it resulted in a number of innovations that forever change the way we do school.

Has your experience during school closures sparked new ideas for:

  • What's your dream remote learning platform or app?
  • How can parents and teachers stay in communication to better meet students' needs?
  • How can we build meaningful non-computer-based activities into the remote school day?
  • What are ways students can be graded or show what they know?
  • How can teachers get prep and practice in remote teaching to help students thrive?
  • What can we do to meet students' social and emotional needs in this new context?
  • How do we build upon self-directed virtual learning when we return to school?
