Learning has moved online. We want to help educators and students adapt with a curated list of resources. Remote learning works when we stay open to new methods, and focus on manageable tasks.
Creating an Online Classroom
Stanford Online High School has been successfully educating students online through an innovative virtual classroom model since 2006. For schools exploring online learning in case of temporary closures, this webpage provides free resources and considerations for effective remote teaching and learning.
All guidance is platform-agnostic, focusing on the essential steps for preparing to teach online in a short period of time. Materials here will be updated regularly, and we will be hosting informative webinars to provide more in-depth resources for implementing online pedagogy.
Digital Teaching & Learning
We must not use technology just because it is available. We must use it when, and only when, we can see how it will enable us to do the education job better.Herbert A. Simon, Carnegie Mellon University
For effective integration of technology into a course, it’s important to first identify the desired learning outcomes and then select the technology that enables interactions to support these learning outcomes. Brown’s Instructional Technology Group maintains a Teaching with Technology website to help you discover ways to use technology in your courses. Technology can be used both inside your classroom and to design an online learning environment.
Teaching Effectively During Times of Disruption
Teaching during times of potential disruption requires creative and flexible thinking about how instructors can support students in achieving essential core course learning objectives. This document offers suggestions for instructors in Stanford University’s PWR and Thinking Matters looking to continue offering a student-centered learning experience in a remote or online learning environment.
