15 Remote Pedagogical Approaches to Remote Learning
Ross Morrison McGill recently published an article on 15 Remote Pedagogical Approaches to Remote Learning on his Teacher Tool Kit blog. I am not advocating for implementing ALL 15 of these recommendations but glance it over. Focus on one or two strategies that work with your style, and try to integrate those strategies into your remote learning lessons. Side note, at the top of the blog post it informs us it should be a 5-minute read. I’m not sure about you, but quick hitters like this article are a major plus in my schedule!

Have an idea, just not sure how to execute it? Use this resource for inspiration, motivation, or make a copy of a template and customize it to fit your needs. Matt Miller posted the resource, 100 Remote Learning Activities, Templates, and Tutorials, on his Ditch That Textbook blog. You don’t need to scroll through all 100, they are categorized into 8 different topics and a hyperlink for each topic has been inserted for you below. Just click a topic that may interest you:

Using Your Phone as a Document Camera
I know this post won’t be the most popular topic, but I have to file this one under the category of ‘Where there is a will, there is a way’. There was a lot of chatter this week about connecting document cameras to Chromebooks. This isn’t a perfect solution, but here is a workaround. You could use your phone as a document camera! Interested in learning how, check out this resource from Practical Ed Tech. I understand that this isn’t ideal, but as I said, it’s a workaround. If you don’t feel comfortable with the Overview app, there is also a website called OBS Ninja. I vetted the site with Jeff Wood back in December.
If you are not comfortable using your phone as a document camera, that is ok. There are other alternatives and they all have pros and cons. Get in touch with us and we can discuss them.

Tech Tool(s) of The WEEK
Empower Web Page
I am intentionally not introducing a new tool for the week. Stick to the tools that you are comfortable with and familiar with. There are plenty of resources to help you on the Empower Web Page. If you are looking for something more specific, then contact us and we can help you with your request. A new Tech Tool of the Week will reappear in the near future.
