Distance Learning Week 2 (mostly in videos)

As we wrap up another week of 'distance learning', here's how it's going:

  • I'm loving getting to give more, and more focused feedback to the students doing work
  • I'm sad about the students not participating (this work cannot negatively affect their grades for the semester)- I hope they are all doing okay (physically and emotionally)
  • I am not okay with all the talk about if we go back to school in the fall- it's scary to think about, so I'm irrationally practicing avoidance.
Here's what I've been doing:

Did a Zoom call with some of the staff to talk about Kami (and made a video walkthrough per request). I will be 100% honest here and say that I did not really think of Kami being a 'game-changer', as it was described to me- but it really caused me to stop and think about how different teachers and staff are all in such different places as it relates to technology use in the classroom. Would really love a position where I could help bring everyone on one campus closer together on a technology level!

Most stressful part of all this is trying to prepare my AP CSA students for a modified AP Exam (taken from home!) that everyone's still so unsure about. Here's what I've been trying on that front:


Doodle Notes for FRQ's along with accompanying video walkthroughs. They seemed to go over pretty well, so I'm working on making more of them this week.  And that's about all I've got for this week in distance learning adventures, see you again next week!
