Parents can help by filling out a survey on distance learning
The nonprofit Families in Schools and the Sacramento County Office of Education are asking parents to complete a survey to help develop distance learning curriculum and instructional guidance for math, English language arts, and English language development. The survey asks families:

  • What challenges made it difficult for their child to participate in distance learning
  • Suggestions for administrators and teachers to improve the experience for students to succeed with distance learning
Parents and guardians have through March 31 to complete the survey, which can be found here.

AB- The COVID-19 pandemic has required thousands of public schools to quickly adapt to hybrid or fully remote models. These new models have presented unprecedented challenges for school nurses as they learn how to optimize their interactions with parents and students to provide ongoing support and monitoring of health. The growing reliance on virtual and hybrid public education is also placing new demands on school nurses to be versed in telehealth and school physicians to support their work. Greenfield Commonwealth Virtual School (GCVS) and other public virtual schools have been meeting these challenges for many years prior to the pandemic and have “lessons learned” to share with traditional “brick-and-mortar” nursing staff. GCVS students benefit from a climate that rewards collaboration between the health team, parents, teachers, and administrators, and this article will describe the role, job description, and other practices related to school nursing in a primarily virtual world.

AB- Safety isolation protocols in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic have had the unintended consequence of social isolation for adolescents, youth who have a developmental need for autonomy and peer connection. Social isolation alone can lead to various psychological effects such as anxiety, stress, low mood, fear, frustration, and boredom. School nurses serve a vital role in addressing stress among adolescents by initiating early interventions, ensuring positive school experiences for students, and providing support surrounding the development of mental health disorders. Through implementation of NASN’s Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice, school nurses address stress among high school students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Innovative interventions can include recognizing signs and symptoms of stress on physical and emotional health, advocating for mental health literacy curriculums, social prescribing, incorporating anticipatory guidance related to health promotion lifestyle practices into each school health encounter, and creating a virtual school health office to reach students while COVID-19 safety isolation continues.

AB- In a scholarly context where the threat of automation (digital educational robots) on teachers’ job security in the United States has been barely discussed by past and contemporary researchers in labor relations in education, this article provides three arguments which suggest that a mass replacement of K-12 teachers at work by automation is less likely to occur in the foreseeable future. It goes beyond the perspective provided by the few researchers who have discussed this matter, namely the argument of technology limitation. It suggests that in addition to this argument, a consideration of the entrenchment of collective bargaining and the trend of current government strategic plans on the implementation of technology in public schools, underscores that teachers are not going to lose their jobs soon. But at the same time, it does not dismiss the idea that as robots become more sophisticated, teachers may see their collective bargaining rights being overhauled by automation. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

AB- ‘An essential addition…Wegerif zooms in on the most important ingredient of all in a learning-to-learn classroom culture – the kinds of talk that are allowed and encouraged – and brings together both scholarly and practical approaches in a highly fruitful and accessible way.’Guy Claxton, author of Building Learning Power, What’s the Point of School? and New Kinds of Smart’ This is a thought-provoking and readable book, which makes a very good case for the importance of teaching thinking skills and encouraging creativity through dialogue.’Professor Neil Mercer, University of Cambridge, UK, author of Words and Minds and Dialogue and Development There is growing interest in developing flexible thinking and learning skills in the primary classroom but there has been little agreement as to exactly what these skills are and how best to teach for them. This innovative book responds to that challenge with a coherent account of what thinking and creativity are and how they can be taught. Taking a ‘dialogic’ approach, it shows how engaging children in real dialogue is possible in every area of the curriculum and how this can lead to more reflective, considerate and creative children who are able to think for themselves and to learn creatively. Wegerif explores the success of approaches such as Philosophy for Children, Thinking Together, Dialogic Teaching and Building Learning Power. Using illustrations and activities, he explains how teaching and learning across the primary curriculum can be transformed. This book is important reading for all primary teachers and trainees who are looking for practical ideas for teaching thinking. It will also be valuable for anyone who wants to understand education and think more about what is most important in education.
