K-12 Online Learning It’s Conference Week!

This is the second time that I have skipped SITE.  It was always a conference that I attended, but I didn’t in 2020 because I wanted to focus on international conferences and get a better understanding of what is happening outside of North America (which worked out REALLY well, pandemic and all).

Dear Michael Barbour,

We are so excited to see you soon!

In order to assist you in making your schedule for this week, we have created a list of live presentations for this year’s conference that were either proposed to our SIG or tagged as K-12 Online Learning. We hope to see you in some of these sessions and at the SIG Meeting on Friday (1:45 PM EDT to 2:45 PM EDT).

You can access the list at: http://bit.ly/K12OLSIG21S

If you are unable to access the bit.ly link, email Cecil (cecil.r.short@gmail.com) and he will send you a .pdf schedule.

We hope you enjoy the conference!

Sincerely,
K-12 Online Learning Chairs
Keryn Pratt and Cecil R Short

NEW Open Access Book! What Teacher Educators Should Have Learned from 2020

I believe a few of the chapters that I just posted in that sequence of citations came from this book.

JUST PUBLISHED!
NEW Open Access eBook
What Teacher Educators
Should Have Learned From 2020
While a global pandemic certainly brought with it loss and devastation, there were still places where light and hope could break though. In every difficult thing there is the space to grow and to learn, and the field of education is no exception.

This book, edited by Kent State University’s Richard Ferdig and Kristine Pytash, and published by AACE, begins the hard work of synthesizing what the experiences of 2020 can show us about how to remake education for the future. As we look back and look ahead, it’s clear that education is not going to return to anything like pre-pandemic schooling. Instead, a workable balance of in-person and digital learning must be found to motivate and educate all students. While many people yearn for a “return to normal,” the shift to emergency remote teaching, accompanied by a resurgence in the civil rights movement, made clear that “normal” really only worked for the privileged few.

We must see 2020 as an opportunity for an educational revolution. There is great value in what we can learn, uncover, unpack, and change from education in 2020, and this book invites us to do just that.

Resources for

  • Teacher educators interested in implementing social-emotional pedagogy
  • Instructors looking for best practices in teaching field experiences online
  • Scholars and practitioners interested in eXtended Reality like AR, VR, and 360
  • Researchers looking to find new areas for promising research within technology and teacher education
  • Student readings
  • and anyone interested in the role of technology in preservice and inservice teacher education.
