Remote learning boosts Kingsman student achievement

by Joan Reissman

A resourceful school turns pandemic necessity into academic virtue

The past 14 months of virus disruption have produced a mediastorm about the many difficulties faced by teachers and students forced to practice remote and hybrid learning, and the resulting learning loss or unfinished learning. Teachers have had to perform a juggling act every time they step into the classroom or log into Zoom. Many commentators have declared remote learning a frustrating failure. But not all users of the medium agree. I have worked this year with a school that figured out how to make remote learning work. The Kingsman Academy Public Charter School in Washington D.C. adapted its program to the necessities of online education and saw its students flourish. As a remote learning consultant to the school, I observed students making exceptional progress.

Tips and Strategies for Teachers Transitioning to Online Courses

MARCH 2020 PODCAST – Today’s podcast will provide some tips and strategies for teachers transitioning to online courses. It features Dr. Michael Marrapodi, Dean of Online Programming at Cambridge College. This podcast was created by JFYNetWorks, a Boston-based nonprofit provider of blended learning programs to schools. JFY’s blended instructional support programs build skills and help raise individual and school performance measures. JFY brings online assessments and curriculum into the classroom and works with teachers to provide individualized instruction to help students achieve measured skill gains.

In response to the current crisis, JFY is now offering its online curriculum and teacher support remotely to help teachers sustain instruction during the shutdown. For more information on JFYNet‘s Remote Learning contact Greg Cunningham.

Teachers often wonder whether an online course can be as effective as a face to face course. As Dr. Marrapodi explains, the potential is absolutely there.
