Virtual Teaching Toolkit

To support all high school classes moving online again, the Tech Ambassadors have helped compile a virtual teaching toolkit to help staff get back in the swing of online teaching. It’s a short, seven-slide presentation you can use as a resource moving forward. We have suggestions and resources for five main areas:

  1. First day logistics for teachers and students
  2. Making your own teaching videos
  3. Creating accessible lessons
  4. Day to day efficiency
  5. Communicating with students
The toolkit.

View or Download

You can take a look at the full toolkit in this view-only presentation. If you want your own copy, you can do that here. You can also download this handy-dandy PDF if you’d like to mark one up for yourself.

Other Resources

We have several different resources which you can use to learn more. This blog is a great place to start for teaching ideas. There’s also our YouTube channel which has some new videos this semester.

More PD is being added to the calendar and you can see all upcoming options on the Digital Learning Resources website.

Finally, new as of last week, the old Megaphone extension has been updated to now show upcoming PD! If you want to know what’s on the calendar, click the megaphone and it’ll show upcoming workshops. Clicking on the workshop title will take you to the calendar event for details, links, and other information for the session.

As new sessions are added, the “New” icon will appear on the extension so you can keep an eye on what’s coming up.
