Always have a backup plan
If this past year has taught us anything at all, it's this:
Have. A. Backup. Plan.
Giving "March Madness" a whole different meaning, we find ourselves in another challenging situation! With many of Maricopa's systems currently down, we once again need to remind ourselves to remain flexible, patient, and willing to undertake some creative workarounds.
On March 9th, we shared ideas for supporting teaching & learning by using Digital Interactive Notebooks. We also provided links to FREE templates - downloadable as Google Slides or as Powerpoint - so that you don't have to build your own from scratch.

It's almost Spring Break, so today I wanted to share something FUN and SIMPLE!

We get a lot of questions about annotating electronically - whether it's to make "explainer" videos for asynchronous use, or for real-time use as an electronic whiteboard in a synchronous online environment.
In Part 1, we covered some low-stakes, quick-to-implement active learning strategies - this past week, in Part 2, we looked at some higher-order strategies, aimed at breaking down complex content, and allowing for differentiated instruction.
These strategies can be modified for any teaching modality (in person, asynchronous online, or synchronous online), but we model them in the synchronous online environment with Webex Meetings. The slides include some video links of tried & true sources that will take you through the approaches taken in other teaching modalities (in-person and asynchronous online).
