Scaling Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative to Support Continuity of Learning
The Vermont Agency of Education will be scaling its existing relationship with Vermont Virtual Learning Cooperative (VTVLC) to provide an optional virtual learning management system (LMS) to support SUs/SDs, Career Technical (CTE) and Adult Education and Literacy (AEL) centers as they shift to remote education statewide. This is targeted to serve secondary students beginning at grade 6 for the remainder of the school year.
This option will be at no cost to districts, schools or providers.
Professional Development & Trainings
During this online workshop, experienced educators will learn to prioritize their efforts in connecting with their students from a distance. The transition to the online classroom can be overwhelming for both teacher and student, but this workshop helps take the initial shock to a manageable level. During this FREE 3 hour workshop, you’ll learn from experienced online educators how to quickly establish communications, maintain a rapport, and engage students to maximize the success of the transition to online learning.
Online Teaching Best Practices
This introductory class is meant to help teachers who unexpectedly find themselves teaching online without having previous training in the pedagogy of online teaching. It is a selection of materials from multiple classes by the Northeast Online Teaching Institute including Methods 1: Introduction to Online Teaching, Methods II: Online Teaching Tools & Techniques, and Online Teaching with Practicum. The class uses the seven non-optional National Standards for Quality Online Teaching to organize the class content.
Participants who need a quick introduction with practical ideas on the basics of teaching online should start with Up and Running, a free course by NEOTI which focuses on helping teachers feel more confident about remote teaching. Once you have a sense of what your remote teaching will look like, this class can help you start to do it better.
This class is not a replacement for more formal training in online teaching, as it attempts to take 34 weeks of learning and summarize it down to the most important pieces of information that a teacher who is temporarily remotely teaching in an emergency setting could use to understand the structure and the content of the field.
An invite to join will be emailed to those directly who have shown interest in this position.
