Ep 2 - The Golden Nuggets of Distance Learning during COVID19
This episode is all about the golden nuggets to the abrupt and sudden change to distance learning.  While it has been the most challenging time of teachers' careers, there are some hidden gems that are popping up.  I started noticing teachers mentioning these positive nuggets and so it prompted me to survey teachers at the schools I visit and throughout the state of Vermont.  I then invited some of those teachers to share their golden nuggets during a Lunch and Learn I host every day.  Check out THIS LINK to see a compilation of all the responses.  And please subscribe to my podcast!

Ep 1 - Distance Learning Attendance Strategies
This is the first episode for Decoding Distance learning and it is about Distance Learning Attendance Strategies.  The agency of Education has required all schools to keep track of attendance while doing distance learning, it's part of the continuity of education plan, but taking attendance in this new way of teaching and learning looks very different, so I invited teachers to share what they have been doing to take attendance during this period of distance learning.  I compiled all the answers into a google doc.
