Distance Learning from a Student Perspective - Notetaker for SPED and Support Staff
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 Special Education and Support staff, and focuses on how staff can identify strategies to help different learners overcome barriers to accessing their education via a distance model.
