Adapting E-Learning to Remote Learning
This episode focuses on how two school districts, one suburban and one rural, are adjusting their existing e-learning plans to a longer-term remote learning situation. Shannon Duling is the superintendent of Princeville Community Unit School District 326 in rural central Illinois. John Connolly is the Chief Technology Officer in suburban Consolidated Community High School District 230. Together we discuss the surprising commonalities in their approaches to adapting their existing e-learning plans to our current reality of longer-term remote learning. This episode was recorded just before the State of Illinois had released their guidelines supporting remote learning. The approaches taken by each of these very different school districts aligns nicely to the state guidelines and provides valuable insight into the process of adapting e-learning plans, which were designed for just a day or two of instructional support, into longer-term remote learning plans.
