Presenting Virtual Content: A continuum of options (Interactive Meeting)
Diana Straut, Ph. D., Senior Professional Development Specialist
This session explores a variety of ways to share content across synchronous, asynchronous, small group and 1:1 virtual options. Ideas for transferring face to face teaching strategies--using packets, project based learning, and peer to peer cooperative learning for example--into virtual classrooms will be offered. Participants will explore
considerations for deciding how to chunk content into manageable pieces for online learning
a continuum of no-tech or low tech ideas for presenting content in online settings
simple ideas for differentiating instruction to meet the needs of a wide range of learners
Some of the ideas that were introduced in the “Best Practices for Virtual Learning Environments” Webinar (4/20/20) will be further explored, as well as new ideas for offering content to students who are learning remotely.
