Organizing and Supporting Virtual Learning


Discussion Focus: This month, NCEE’s complementary partner supports have focused around routines and rituals to engage students in their learning. Our September collaborative learning virtual session featured a district that is organizing and supporting teaching and learning while implementing virtual instruction. NCEE was joined by leaders from Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) for a panel discussion. In anticipation of a fully virtual opening, the CCPS team invested their energy on planning for learning, defining three modes: online synchronous, online asynchronous, and unplugged.

During our session on September 30, CCPS shared insight on their planning and how the school year is unfolding. They also highlighted a project they have developed to engage students in active, purposeful project-based learning: WOKE (Widening Options Through Knowledge and Empowerment), which is aligned with the United Nations’ 18 Sustainable Development Goals.

This Discussion Board is a place for participants in the September 30 session to continue the conversation and the learning and for others to share in the learning by reviewing the board and adding comments, questions, etc.
