Is your class transitioning to a distance learning environment? We know that new learning environments come with a lot of big questions, firsts, challenges and opportunities. In this webinar, we will offer guidance for getting your class, students and parents acclimated to a remote classroom, share tips and tools, and give you best practices for how to use ASSISTments to help your kids succeed with distance learning.

Drop In Help Session: Distance Learning and the ASSISTments Community
Monday, April 6, 2pm EDT

Drop in to our Help Session with a question or problem of practice around using ASSISTments to support distance learning. ASSISTments staff will be on hand to respond to questions, and we'll create space to connect with and hear from other users as well. Recommended as follow-up for those who have attended one of our Distance Learning Webinars, but all are welcome!

Reconsider the 'School Day'

Going remote isn't about moving school hours behind a computer.

Think in terms of benchmarks, assignments, and face time with kids.

Structure work as projects or multi-day assignments.

Define Your New Routine

Set a new plan and schedule for what each school day (or week) will look like.

Ask yourself what learning goals and assignments students should meet. How will you give feedback?

Stay in touch regularly with students and parents.

Fill Your Toolbox

Leverage tools you're already using if at all possible.

For new tools, run practice activities or simple games to build students' confidence before requiring it for schoolwork.

Set Expectations

Determine how you and students should communicate with each other, and at what frequency.

Plan face time with students - individually, in small groups, and as a full class.

Ensure students know what they should be doing in the time you're apart.

Be Kind to Yourself

Take it slow.

Distance learning is likely new territory for you, students, and parents.

Start simple and work your way up.

Using ASSISTments in a Distance Learning Environment

We've curated instructional guidance and tips specific to using ASSISTments in a distance learning environment.

The First 3 steps are Unchanged in a remote classroom
1. Create Class Assignments
2. Students Get Feedback
3. Review Assignment Report
4. Without a physical class, reviewing the data with the class (Step 4) needs to look and feel different. Here are some ideas for instruction in a distance learning environment:

-Email or screenshare the class with the results of how the class is doing and where support is needed
-Message students individually to address problems they struggled with
-Provide mixed media support (video, notes, explanations) to give instruction and explanation
-Assign Skill Builders for students who need extra practice
-Group students via Google Classroom and assign targeted problem sets
