  • 5 Research-Backed Tips to Improve Your Online Teaching Presence

    So Moore came up with an innovative solution: Noticing that radios were relatively cheap and ubiquitous, he developed courses that could be broadcast from the local radio station. He quickly realized, though, that it wasn’t the same as giving a lecture in front of students. He could no longer chat informally with the farmers, answer their pressing questions, or walk around the farm with them looking for ways to improve productivity. Distance learning felt—at least initially—less personal and less effective to Moore, so much that he dedicated his career to understanding how it could be made more human.

  • Four Ways to Help Students Feel Intrinsically Motivated to Do Distance Learning

    I have spent a lot of time thinking and reading about student motivation, as well as trying to help support the development of intrinsic motivation among my students.

Katie Hull Sypnieski and I also worked with Ed Week to develop four related videos earlier this year: Everything You Wanted to Know About Student Motivation, But Were Afraid to Ask. Finally, earlier this month, I made another video for Ed Week sharing some tips for teachers to maximize their success in distance learning.

  • Getting Creative When Schools Go Remote

    Teachers are nothing if not creative. On an ordinary day, teachers are masters of marshaling resources, planning on the fly, differentiating lessons for diverse learners, and so much more. But the last six weeks have been far from ordinary. As thousands of teachers nationwide have transitioned to some form of remote teaching, the learning curve has been steep. For many teachers, the abrupt switch to online instruction has been a new and daunting experience. At the same time, this transition has also been a testament to teachers’ resilience and willingness to go above and beyond. Whether it’s finding creative ways to provide one-on-one support, making space for important social interactions to happen online, or helping younger students make sense of Zoom, teachers are working hard to ensure students and their families have the support they need to keep going through this uncertain time.

  • A Powerful Model for Understanding Good Tech Integration

    The biggest obstacle to teaching online probably isn’t the technology. Teachers seek out educational technology, in fact, because it “can have considerable positive impacts on student performance,” according to a 2016 study—improving test scores and allowing teachers to assess student achievement more efficiently. The big problem is how to integrate it: Beyond the sheer number of tech tools available, the same researchers identified “inadequate professional development and training” as the primary obstacle to using technology productively in classrooms.
