Great minds....someone shared that article on the Transcend slack page, and I just included it a reply to another collaborator!

Cara commented on Remote Learning at School

@DarryStrickland I have reached out to the principals at both of my schools to start the interview process. There are also a lot of sources coming out in the media, like the NY Times article below, that have started to capture the most effective aspects of virtual learning. I agree that student voice is a key aspect to making a model like this work.

David Enders One strategy I've used successfully with students is a "menu of learning". Each day, students would have required work time around defined learning targets. They could then decide how they wanted to approach the learning (digitally, reading, mini-teacher lesson, project, etc) and in what order they wanted to learn. It was a daily contract with students where we agreed that, in order to have the freedom within the contract they also had to take responsibility for their work. This is similar to the personalized learning plans that many schools currently offer students.

As far as scaling, my philosophy is to make sure the model works before spreading it. This idea is only in its infancy, so I'd want to try it in the schools where I currently work before sharing the resources/structures on a wider scale.
