Thank you to Joey Mitchell on Twitter for sharing your thoughts on Blended Learning with Google!
Today in Blended Learning with Google by @ShakeUpLearning… “We cannot replicate the school day online. We have to break the traditional school day mindset – that school has to look a certain way. That is a mindset. Let it go. It’s time to rethink school and innovate.” pic.twitter.com/G5EbhpVGhr

Teaching Digitally Resource Guide
I’d be surprised if you haven’t seen one of Nadine Gilkison’s free resources online!
Today, we are looking at her “Teaching Digitally Resource Guide,” an online slide deck of resources and tips to help teachers make the shift to teaching digitally.
Driven by the needs of the pandemic, Nadine put together this professional learning guide for her teachers at Franklin Township in Indiana.
The Table of Contents
Types of Learning
I like how Nadine kicks things off with some definitions for synchronous, asynchronous, and blended learning. AND! She adds audio of her explaining things on the slide so teachers can come back to it and review it. Which actually happens to be a great way to model asynchronous learning!
COVID Distance Learning – Where are you?
Nadine uses these levels (as defined by @JenniferWathall) to help teachers see where they are and how they can improve.
Digital Lesson Design
Nadine helps her teachers start where they move through levels to take things beyond simple substitutions.
She shares tips, ideas, and web tools that help teachers better understand how to create a digital learning experience by adding in the 4 C’s and learning how to create Hyperdocs and use Eduprotocols.
Essential Skills for Teachers and Students
Nadine has taken the tools her teachers use and need the most and broken down the most essential skills–like the Google Classroom example below.
These are the things that every teacher and every student needs to know about Google Classroom.
We only had time to scratch the surface of this amazing guide from Nadine.
What would you add to this guide? Please leave us a comment and share!
