Distance Learning from a Student Perspective - Notetaker for Content Area Teachers
This activity is best done in a fairly large group (at Gateway, it was an all-faculty meeting), and will take a little bit of advance preparation: you’ll need to set up several dummy accounts on Google Classroom (or whatever learning platform your school is using) and “enroll” them in a standard course load. Small teams of teachers will then “shadow” the student – surveying a day or week as a student would to get a sense of what works well and what is confusing.
This handout is for regular content area teachers and focuses on building accessible, easy to navigate online classrooms.
