Turn snow days into e-learning days with these 6 simple steps | eSchool News | eSchool News

Posted: January 29, 2015, 12:33 am

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

It’s time for e-learning to become common place in public schools, starting with snow days.
  • Just because students are not at school doesn't mean the learning stops. What instead of mandating kids have internet access at home, there are pre-made activities that don't foresee the dependency on the Internet and instead, can be approved by a parent/guardian signature that such learning activities took place during the day off school for whatever reason. - Sharin Tebo

Online learning also helps teachers reduce their stress load. It provides a predictable avenue for educators to budget their curriculum goals with available teaching days. Finally, e-learning days provide students with academic consistency and predictability, eliminating any snow day confusion.

Posted: January 29, 2015, 12:30 am

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

1. Check with your state legislators and teachers’ unions about school day minimums and allowable teaching hours. Make sure that, legally, e-learning days are a possibility for your district.
  • It would sure be nice if State Departments of Education got rid of 'hours' and 'seat time' requirements and just acknowledged that it saves time and money if we have students who are already demonstrating and can show competency and proficiency without having to sit and get.  - Sharin Tebo
