Rigor in Remote Learning
Next, provide scaffolding for the students. Think about using tools such as Flipgrid, Edpuzzles, or Educreations to record your thoughts, to model the thought process, and pose guiding questions for students. Lastly, consider how students will demonstrate their learning. You can use technology to create assessments or have them complete performance-based assessments.
It can be difficult to meet the needs of students during this time of remote or hybrid learning. Educators must move beyond basic instruction to provide opportunities for students to improve their learning. Success can happen for students, when educators take their current best practices, adapt them to be more challenging, and incorporate remote learning tools.

Encouraging Student Participation in Distance Learning
4 Ways to Increase Participation
- Hold office hours for one-on-one meetings
- Establish breakouts for small groups
- Create a plan for checking in with students to offer support and encouragement
- Provide high-interest resources and relevant connections
In remote learning, discussions can take many forms. It can be live, teacher-moderated text, audio, video exchanges during synchronous instruction, etc. Your facilitation responsibilities should ensure the process is clear and provide standards. This is a great time to explore taking virtual field trips with your students to deepen their learning and participation.
