After more than a week of delays, then finally a memo outlining our reporting process, there is now an entire “about face”. I can’t share it, because I’m not the official “messenger”, but I know it is making the rounds in Facebook and Twitter.
And yesterday’s post seems prescient: many of our Ontario school boards seem to be ready to opt for the worst of all worlds: a hybrid model where a teacher has to teach TWO groups at the same time, one in front of them in person while at the same time juggling the other group online within MS Teams or Google Meet.
I am seeing wonderful learning happening in our fully online model. And I saw tired, but happy, students in their double-periods in face-to-face settings. Both had the benefits of some asynchronous learning, and synchronous lessons with the full class of up to 34 students.
Now our successful online model is at risk of being downgraded, with teacher attention having to be split.
I need to go watch more Murdoch Mysteries…..
