Online Learning Weekly Planner

  • What action(s) might you take in order to prepare for online and blended learning? 

I think that my (our) team’s first corse of action will be to communicate and utilize the strengths of each other’s strengths .  Also, to begin to unpack the requirements and the schedule for the first couple of weeks of school.  We will be coming at this from many places, geographically and emotionally. I am eager to jump in and get a feel for what needs to be done.

  • Considering your previous experience with online learning, what are your instructional strengths & areas for growth? 

I enjoyed meeting one on one with students in order to give feedback and for SEL check-ins.  I was able to create a pretty intuitive and smooth daily lesson template for the students to use.  I will be working on following up on feedback and making sure that students implement it to improve their work.

  • Using the 5Cs of online learning, what goals might you set for yourself in anticipation of future online instruction?  

I would like to work on Clarify.  Due to the rapid start of online learning in the spring I think I did not cement expectations or guidelines during online Zoom meetings.  This term I think routines and expectations will need to be clearly stated and completely understood in order to begin the school year on the right foot.

  • How might you achieve these goals? Who might you reach out to for support? 

I will definitely be using many of the things I have learned in the modules to set my expectations for our time online.  I will be reaching out to my Grade 5 teammates.  I was so impressed with how we communicated and adapted to ensure the lessons we taught last year were engaging and the students needs were met.

  • If you had a magic wand, what might the 5Cs of online learning look like in your classroom? 

If I had a magic it would be to create a personal assistant.  Someone who would facilitate my meeting times with students and to take notes during our one-on-one meetings.  They would encourage me to incorporate things I had missed and would generally be there to keep my spirits high.  I would use it to reach students who I know struggled so mightily with the new platform of online learning.

    Hi Josh, I enjoyed reading your reflection and appreciate you taking the time out of your summer to complete this work. Your thoughts on preparation and previous experience seem spot on with the grade level. No doubt you and your team will continue to plan with the best of them. I like how you pulled the one-to-one meetings, which at one point seemed like an hurdle for some, as a way to strengthen SEL and build a strong rapport. Curious at this point, how has your effort to work on Clarify gone? Have you been able to establish norms and routines or is it something that still needs more time? Also, have you found a rhythm with your IP, if so what has worked? Thanks again for all you do and please continue to collaborate with your team. Also, if your magic wand can create a personal assistant, please let me borrow it. Keep up the great work, looking forward to seeing you soon! – Brian
