Many school districts are closing to keep their communities safe from COVID-19. While we believe safety is the priority, we know that loss of classroom time could further achievement gaps due to paused learning. Since we are an education organization of primarily remote workers, we have a few tips we think you can utilize to maximize your time for those meetings or courses that cannot afford to be paused.
From technical tips on conference calling software, to team habits which turn meetings and discussions into productive, two-way conversations, our team has spent a lot of time and thought on changing the way we interact with one another. Creating inclusive and safe environments promotes real learning and collaboration, which will be more important than ever as we suddenly shift the way we interact with little notice and preparation.
